I just bought tickets to the MU game in October. Where are all of you staying?? I have called 10 hotels in Columbia with no vacancies available. Are there any towns on the outskirts that would be a good choice? Help a brother out haha.
Look at Kingdom City, Fulton, or Boonville.
Thanks! I saw Fulton on the map but wasn't sure about any of those towns. I will get on that right now. Any other info about Columbia you can share? Do's or Don'ts? Places to go? Etc..
Kingdom City is 20 minutes away and the Lake of the Ozarks is about 45 minutes away.
Also, I think the Thursday before the game is the deadline for people to cancel rooms w/ out charge.
The Kansas City and St Louis Alumni associations are having a tailgate. Should be fun. Harpo's is a good bar. Shakespeare's is great pizza but on gameday will be annoyingly crowded.
I called a hotel in Kingdom City and they gave me the number to the Ramada Inn in Columbia. I just booked rooms there. They had 4 left, so they have 3 now. It is 4 miles from the stadium. It is on Conley Road. I posted the address below. Is this a decent part of town? Rooms were $119 a night. No deposit required. Just a credit card to hold the rooms.

Do you know of any hotels offering shuttle service to the stadium or campus?
Here is a good link for a lot of info including shuttle services.
Ride the Columbia Transit Shuttle Bus to all Mizzou Home Football Games for only $1.50 each way (exact change required). All buses drop-off at the intersection of Tiger Avenue and Hospital Drive, and pick-up locations are scattered throughout downtown, as well as hotels, restaurants and shopping centers in east, south and west Columbia.

Kansas City is an awesome town if you've never visited. I'm getting there Thursday and driving over to Columbia for the game.
Enjoying the process. RTR!
there plenty of towns close to columbia to stay in.....
Roll Tide to Her
Yeah, underrated and better than most would think who haven't been there before.
If anyone's in KC, go to Oklahoma Joe's- some of the best ribs I've ever had.

Kansas City native here, and will +1 the OK Joe's suggestion.
However, if you want the true Holy Grail of BBQ, you need to go to LC's and order the burnt ends. Truly, truly the greatest food on the planet.
It's ok. U can't walk to anything from here. U will need to drive to the downtown area for fun and to the stadium for the game.
Willies is a good place. Also Shiloh's. Food places downtown as well like Flat Branch, Addisons, Blue, n Forge & Vine are good. People will tell u Shakespeare's Pizza but personally I think it's terrible.
there isn't really anything with an easy walk to the stadium. It is separated from campus by a 4 lane highway.
Okie Joe's is nice, LC's burnt ends are impressive, I enjoy Arthur Bryant's a lot. Great thing is Okie Joes is 5 miles from the house, LC's is 10 minutes from the office, and Bryant's original location is just a great experience. In a BBQ competition this week so I am so ready for that.
You have to go by Harpo's as well. One of the best college bars in America.
As for Shakespeare's I kind of agree but everyone LOVES it! It's more about the good beer IMO and it's more of a thick Chicago style crust if you like that.
As for crossing the '4 lane Highway' well, at two intersections they have State Trooper's guiding the fans and traffic but you also have the tunnel that you can walk underneath the road if crossing a street by feet is too much to ask.
If you are there on Friday night you are in for a treat. Stop by the Fieldhouse and also Willie's and then head to Quinton's upstair's called the 'Skylounge' which is 3 stories and has glass/see through floors.
Shiloh's and Willie's are more for the older students/alumni where Fieldhouse, Harpo's, Campus Bar, etc. are more for the fake I.D. crowds.
