Great River Road Byway

Legendary author Mark Twain called the Mississippi River “The Body of the Nation” and on the Great River Road National Scenic Byway it’s easy to see why. The byway stretches across 10 states — that’s Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana — originating in the lake country of Minnesota and flowing through the heartland of America to its end in the Gulf of Mexico off the Louisiana coast.
