Sikeston is a community which enjoys life.  When we're not working, there are plenty of things to do for recreation.  You will discover sports league activity of all kinds happening out at the Sikeston Sports Complex, which provides ample outdoor recreation opportunities for all of our young (and not so young) folks.  The Complex also hosts the Sikeston Corporate Games every other year, during which the business community squares off in a good natured competion for the coveted Mayor's Trophy.  The Clinton Community Center is available for business meetings, Christmas parties, anniversary/wedding receptions, civic club fundraisers, etc.  The YMCA of Southeast Missouri facilities include an indoor swimming pool with large slide, indoor walking track, fitness center, and rock climbing wall.  The Albritton-Meyer Performing Arts Center hosts many performances throughout the year.  You'll enjoy browsing the exhibits in our historical Sikeston Depot Museum.  Shopping fanatics will be kept busy with the many shopping outlets and retail centers including the charming shops in the "historic downtown" area  And you probably have already heard of our nationally acclaimed "Home of the Throwed Rolls" - Lambert's Café.  Sikeston is also home to one of the top five professional outdoor rodeos, The Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo, held annually the first full week in August.  This rodeo brings to town nationally-ranked cowboys and country/western stars - all for your entertainment. Sikeston's community of faith is alive and welcoming.  And don't forget the Missouri Delta Medical Center where you will be able to receive top-notch heath care right at home.
