4. Book an Historic Stay
If you’re visiting the fair, you probably want to plan to spend the night in Sedalia. Head to Hotel Bothwell (hotelbothwell.com). The historic property has been serving guests since 1927, and its Ivory Grille Restaurant that was renovated last year serves a large menu of steaks, seafood, pasta and more.
5. Stroll Through Downtown
Pop into a few shops and restaurants downtown by taking a walk through the Sedalia Historic District, also known as The Avenues (theavenuessedalia.com). In this district you’ll find good eats, antiques and local boutiques along with Hotel Bothwell, all of which make the stroll back to your lodging even more fun.
