Welcome Joplin, MO Visitors!

Joplin, Missouri came into being in the early 1870s as a bustling trading and mining town and testament to the economic development of the entire region due to the influx of settlers after the Civil War. Before the war, lead had been discovered in the land surrounding Joplin, but it was not until 1871 that the development of the city went truly underway. The small mining town took its name from a nearby spring, which had been named after a reverend in the 1840s that had helped begin the settlement of the region.

Today, Joplin has shed its identity as a sleepy mining village and leapt forth into the modern era as an exciting metropolis of the Midwest. Together with Miami, Oklahoma, it is a clean, urban breath of fresh air amidst the beautiful miles of farmland. Joplin is also a lively cultural center that places great value in the arts. As a city, it is home to multiple theaters performing drama, opera, and musical performances, and it encourages and funds the production of engrossing public murals all around the city. Joplin is the perfect place to catch a live show, or if film is more your style, you can see a flick at the traditional 66 Drive-In Theatre, ranked as one of America's Top Ten Drive-Ins by USA Today. Afterwards, you'll have plenty of options to keep up the Americana by grabbing a bite at any one of the numerous American and BBQ eateries around town.

Joplin isn't just an urban delight; it's also a city that values the nature around it. Joplin has access to a multitude of lovely locales in Southern Missouri and Oklahoma. It's a great place to start your hike, bike, or just to kick off a scenic drive.

Some consider Missouri a "fly-over state," but Cowin Alfa Romeo and FIAT of Springfield thinks that one visit to Joplin will have you coming in for a landing time after time!
