Planning a visit to the Moniteau County, Missouri area

California, Tipton and other Moniteau County towns are located in the center of Missouri. California is 25 minutes from the state capitol in Jefferson City, 45 minutes to the world-famous Lake of the Ozarks, 45 minutes from Sedalia and an hour from Columbia. Being in the center of the state, California is only 2 1/2 hours from Kansas City, St Louis or Springfield, MO.



California offers several dining options and has a locally owned California Motel for overnight accommodations.


Among the fast food national chains there are McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, Subway, and Pizza Hut. Locally owned Burgher Haus provides an extensive menu as well as a buffet. Nic NacCafe is a long-time favorite of many local residents. There is also the Jalisco Mexican restaurant and a Chinese restaurant.



Tipton offers dining options including Bobio's Eatery, 5 & 50 Drive-in, Vanilla Grill and Subway. The Twin Pine motel provides overnight accommodations.


Jefferson City

California is just 25 miles west of the State Capitol and Jefferson City. A 4-lane divided highway was completed to California in 2010. This makes the commute for many state workers much safer, easier and more convenient.


Jefferson City has a wide variety of national chains from fast food to steak houses. The nearest national chain hotels to California are the Hampton Inn and Hampton Inn Suites on the west side of Jefferson City
