You don't have to go to a big city to find big thrills. Some of the most interesting and unique attractions are often hidden away outside of the warn path in smaller towns waiting to be explored.

Cheapsim search around the country for the towns that are often overlooked, the destinations that are just as worth exploring as the big cities that draw in more tourists. To determine the list, the site "took into account towns with a range of attractive offerings, including cultural attractions, outdoor activities, great dining and shopping options, low cost of living, and high quality of life, among other factors."

According to the site, the most underrated town in Missouri is Perry, which is a beautiful snapshot of what the Show-Me State has to offer. Here's what the site had to say about the most overlooked town in Missouri:

"Perry is a little lake town with a big heart. With a population of fewer than 700 people, it's the classic small Midwestern town — but don't expect a ho-hum, slow-paced life. The town serves as the 'gateway' to Mark Twain Lake, which is only minutes away and draws millions of visitors each year. If you live in Perry, you'll get all of the economic opportunity and bustle of the tourism trade without being submerged in a tourist town."
