ABOUT the great river road
The Mississippi River is one of the world’s premier natural attractions. It is the largest river in North America and with it’s major tributaries – the Missouri and the Ohio rivers – it boasts an immense watershed spreading south of the Great Lakes from the Rocky Mountains in the west to the Appalachians in the east, covering nearly one-third of the continent and most of the interior of the United States.
The Great River Road follows the river through ten states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. National designation allowed the Commonwealth of Kentucky to join the other nine Mississippi River states in developing a single continuous route with a common strategy for marketing and management.
By jointly developing the corridor’s intrinsic resources and coordinating the experiences of tourists, Kentucky can leverage the federal government’s investment in the Great River Road to the advantage of a region in need of economic growth, community development, and environmental conservation.
Kentucky’s Great River Road is a great place to spend the weekend – or a lifetime! Come and visit us today.
