Description

The northern section of the Mississippi River is different from the violent, flooding evil twin of its lower flows. Up north one can go on a houseboat vacation, fishing and visiting small towns as you drift along. The river sometimes widens enough to be called a lake and all throughout are islands and sandy beaches. The communities that dot the shores are delightful for shopping, local cooking and pieces of Americana.

All along the river you'll find campsites, state parks and wildlife refuges. The environment of the Mississippi River breeds unique bird watching opportunities and the landscape can vary so dramatically that you're unlikely to ever have the same experience twice.
