The Independence center is around the area of Independence City Center and the area of Harry S. Truman National Historic Site.

Located in Jackson County, Independence is the fifth-largest city in Missouri. It's part of the Kansas City metro area and has a population of almost 118,000 residents. Once a point of departure for the Santa Fe, California, and Oregon Trails, Independence was part of the land the U.S. bought from the Indians in the 1803 Louisiana Purchase. The town itself was founded in 1827 and quickly became a hub of the frontier era thanks to its convenient location on the Mississippi River near its convergence with the Kansas River at the former's furthest point west.

The Best Time to Visit Independence, MO

Independence hosts two annual festivals that draw visitors from throughout the region and beyond. In June, the Vaile Strawberry Festival takes over the grounds of the historic Vaile Mansion. Labor Day weekend brings the Santa-Cali-Gon Days, celebrating the city's history as "Queen of the Trails."

As with the rest of the Kansas City metro area, the weather tends to be most temperate in the spring, so try to visit from April to June if you want to avoid the heat or cold.
