The Great River Road...

Looking at traveling down the Great River Road next year and then on to Texas. In your opinion, which is the best route, driving down the east or west side of the Mississippi River. Are there some "must see" points of interest? Thanks

We have traveled the "Great River Road", (both northbound and southbound... on both sides of the Mississippi), numinous times.
IMO neither side is "best".



BTW here is a link to a list of things to see along the GRR:

The website Mel mentioned is the best resource. The GRR is a wonderful drive. It can be somewhat hilly & twisty in the northern sections, but nothing to worry about. As you travel south, the becomes flatter, and sometimes wanders further from the river. However, adventures can be found; we stopped for lunch in Clarksville MO. several years ago, and blundered into the little city park where they were setting up for a chili festival the next day. One conversation led to another, time passed, we were invited to test the purity of samples from the Budweiser trailer, invited to camp for the night in the driveway of the town tourism director, and stayed for the festival the next day. One of those wonderful memories that stay with you...
