    Excelsior Springs has long been known for its "healing waters". Since the 1800's locals used the spring waters to sooth and heal ailments. And from there a community was born. The area created a place for guests in camping areas and a grand hotel known as "The Elms". Hosting conventions, mobsters, and President Harry Truman himself, The Elms built a reputation for grand experience, replenishment and luxury.

    With all this in mind the town of Excelsior Springs, has continued to grow into a paradise for a vacation or your live in community. With such a nostalgic past, Excelsior Springs boasts "Small Town Charm, Big City Appeal".

    Dubious Claims is a diamond in downtown historic Excelsior Springs! This place is so much fun and is always filled with the locals and everyone is friends. Dubious Claims has delicious beers and fun food. My husband and I miss Rock N Run in Liberty so much that we wanted to try another local brewery and found this one. It's a must visit and dine! You won't be sorry. You will feel like part of the community once you visit there-enjoy!

    My husband and I had a date night and I made reservations at Ventana Grille from a result of my neighbors recommendation. Ventana is exactly the place that I was looking for and is located in the beautiful Excelsior Springs town. It's fabulous food and features steak, seafood and pasta. Try it for a night out of the city. Short drive and it's well worth your time. They are located at

    Rocky Hollow is a small lake located outside of the city of Excelsior Springs, about 30 minutes from Kansas City. There are no engine powered boats allowed on the lake. Rocky Hollow is a very good lake for a quiet afternoon's fishing or for beginning paddlers. The water is calm without a lot of obstacles.

    I drove through Richmond the other day; this is a nice little town that has a lot of character. David Whitmer's home site is located right down town. The home is no longer there; it has long since been torn down and another business building has been erected in its place. Richmond is not a very big town so this location will not be hard to find. Not far from the David Whitmer's home site is a graveyard where you can find the Monument for the three witnesses. I visited both places and found the Cemetery a little more satisfying if you are looking for historical places in Missouri. At the cemetery you will find the three witnesses monument but also several graves from the early settlement of the area. These grave stones have weathered a lot and some are broken up; so they are encased in a larger block of cement. At the monument there are two different markers that explain what has happened to the area. This is a beautiful cemetery and well taken care of. It is well worth the trip to see.

    You will find a perfect spot for a weekend getaway only a few minutes away from Liberty. The spa is like one you would find in Vegas, but only better since it's so close to home. I highly recommend any of their services - you won't be disappointed. From the time you come in the doors and the friendly staff greets you to the time you check out; you will be surprised by the hospitality. The best part about The Elms has to be the Grotto, which comes with any spa package. You can use it all day to relax and unwind.

  • The Excelsior Springs Golf Course was established in 1915 and is a links style public course. Attached to the Club House is the "Oly" deck that honors the late Don Olinger. This deck was built by donations and donated labor in honor of Don. Don was well known in the community and hired me when I went to work for Boatmen's Bank. Don was a "Blue Suit" in a dark suit era of banking.

    So come up and enjoy a game of golf. Grab something from the clubhouse and take a break on the "Oly Deck". Who know's if you listen hard enough you may hear one of the stories that Don loved to tell.

    I absolutely love our community. It has a great small town feel where it seems like everyone knows everyone, although we do have over 11,000 residents and I must admit I don't know all of them. But I do love how at home I feel in this community! It's one where everyone is helpful and friendly and most everyone waves at one another (depending on their day I suppose) :). Downtown Excelsior is constantly holding events, beer fest, wine fest, art crawls, chocolate tours, diva's night out and so many more. Our town is greatly underestimated for all that it has to offer. There are 18+ parks, three of which are state parks. Shopping and dining downtown is a most unique experience with all kinds of foods and things that you won't find anywhere else but here. We have come a long way and are continuing to grow in a most positive direction. My husband and I couldn't be more proud to live in, represent and raise our little girl here. It is home.

    A mineral water spring was found in Excelsior Springs in 1880 and became known as Siloam Spring. A second spring was found in 1881 and was named Empire Spring (later Regent). The town was incorporated in 1882. Many other springs were located and the town continued to flourish. Many bath houses and clinics became popular during the heyday of the town. The famous Elms Hotel was built and remodeled several times and continues to be in operation still today. The million dollar Hall of Waters was built in 1937 and is still a popular place to visit. Another popular place to visit is The Excelsior Springs Museum & Archives. It was started in 1967 and is still located at 101 E. Broadway.
