The mighty Mississippi River is one of America's natural wonders. Free to visit, you need to see it.

Spend some time down by the mighty Mississippi when in Memphis. There are so many ways to get out on the water, or cross the bridge that takes you into Arkansas!

There's a rise in anticipation every time you near the river, a sort of Doppler effect brought on by memories of Twain's novels. The Mississippi is the end of the East and one the two great partitions of the American interior, the other being the Rockies.

This river is huge! It is not as busy as it used to be but you can still see some barges on it. Not sure what there is to do on the river but it is a must see!

From Harbor Town to the Pyaramid to Beale Street Landing to Tom Lee Park, the views of the Sunset and barges up and down the Mississippi River are just spectacular.

The Mississippi. The old Missi-sip, said Clark Griswold. Very nice river with plenty of attractions/activities. You can't miss it when you drive in to Memphis.
