St. Robert has a tourist industry with families and friends attending Fort Leonard Wood Soldier graduation ceremonies, conferences and other special events. Currently, 100,000 service members train annually on the military post. Fort Leonard Wood has been a relatively stable “tourist” base that has led to the construction of several hotels and motels in our area. We currently have 22 motel / hotels in the area with over 1,300 rooms. We anticipate that this source of “tourists” will remain stable and even increase into the future. As the families visit our area, they need activities to keep them busy, to include shopping and entertainment opportunities.
