Why did everyone flock to Missouri?

Hello! In doing my genealogy research, I have noticed alot of families picked up and moved to Missouri in the early to mid 1800's. This happened all over Missouri (where my mother's family moved to) in almost all counties. I was just curious as if there was a reason so many people left their lands (either sold them, etc) to make the trek to Missouri? I've families that came from South Carolina, Kentucky, even Virginia, just to name a few. Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!
