Beautiful scenery, wonderful ferry ride, mid-west slow paced cities and riding along the upper Mississippi for a few days. Nothing like the southern part of the river. The northern part is clean looking with people picnicking at the LOCK sites watching the river traffic pass by. The back roads running along the river pass through old river towns appearing not to have changed alot since the '50's. Riding the Mississippi is a great vacation idea whether you are from Iowa, Colorado or yes, even Connecticut.
