We are a river town. The last wild stretch of the 2,341-mile Missouri River flows past us (the river is dammed to the north and channeled to the south.) Explore that history at the Mead Cultural Center or the Missouri National Recreational River headquarters (508 E. 2nd). Tour Gavins Point Dam, tube or canoe the river or rent a pontoon on Lewis & Clark Lake. Tubers, canoeists & kayakers like to float from just below the dam to Riverside Park downtown. Depending on the wind, the journey takes 90-120 minutes.
