Floating the Missouri River in a canoe
I have been given an opportunity to travel to Rocheport, MO (about 2 hours west) and float 6 miles on the Missouri River with Mighty-Mo Canoe Rentals. Has anyone heard of this before? Floating the river in a canoe?! They are calling it safe, but I'm not sure about the current, etc... Thanks for any knowledge
RE: Floating the Missouri River in a canoe
I see that you live in Columbia. Have you done any of the other popular float trips in southern/central MO? We used to do them every summer when I was in my 20's, and those rivers were usually so low in at least one place that we'd have to get out and drag the boats. I know the MO is a much bigger river, but I would imagine if they're doing trips, it must be in a pretty calm section.
Travel Tips for Saint Louis
Despite the touristy nature of...
Despite the touristy nature of the Arch, it is a MUST see. While at the Arch you can see the riverboat casinos and riverboat McDonalds (but I don't care for either). If you want a great meal on a riverboat, try the Robert E. Lee. (Yes, he was that defeated general of the Civil War, but the food here is really great, although a bit expensive.)
If you are in the mood for a good walk and it is a nice day, I would recommend a great stroll through this part of downtown. St. Louis really has some nice old architecture. Although a little bit far, you can walk to Union Station which is a really neat Shopping Mall. It is special because it used to be the passenger train hub for St. Louis and it was remodeled to maintain the great architecture but transform this former train hub into a shopping plaza. It is a little on the pricey side, but nice.
St. Louis has several professional sports teams, including a brand new football stadium, so depending on the time of year, you might catch a sports event. St. Louis has some very nice Theatres downtown as well to see one of the Broadway hits or something else that may be featured.
Try to visit Soulard's Market in downtown as well. It is a neat historic place and there is a good pastry/coffee shop there.
Of course, you MUST also visit Forest Park. There you'll find the St. Louis Zoo, Art Museum and Science Centre. All fantastic places to visit. Near to Forest Park is the Chesshire Inn, a historic inn on the expensive side, but with a FABULOUS Sunday Brunch!!! Reservations are recommended. While casual dress is acceptable, it must be business casual or better.

The Majestic Old Courthouse; 11 North, 4th Street, St. Louis, MO; Telephon # 314-615-1600; Galleries which hihglight St. Louis history from the French founding of the city to the present. Tours daily of the galleries and visits to the restored courthouse. Build between 1839 and 1862, the courthouse was the scene of one of the nation's most important cases concerning the freedom of DRED SCOTT, a slave; also where VIRGINA MINOR'S case for a women's right to vote came to trial in the 1870's.
Sports is a way of life here!!!
People of St.Louis take there sports teams very seriously. They come out and support there teams like no other city I've ever seen. Another thing is, if it's raining, snowing, or anything besides dry conditions. They will drive as slow as possible on the roads. So plan ahead for extra time. Yes they do ask you what high school you went to a lot here. It's our thing you know!!!!
Busch Stadium, GO CARDINALS!!!
The Cardinals is the best Sports watching ever. Okay so I may be a little biased, however every game is a good game at Busch stadium. The fans are awesome and very into the game. Of course it is always better when we win. There are several bars around the stadium to go to after the game.
Also sometimes they have concerts in the stadium and I am waiting for us to be able to host the NHL Winter Classic!!! Go to one of my friends T-shirt website to get funny Cardinals gear: www.rinawear.com
Washington- nice town to visit for tours and sites
It claims to be in the heart of wine country and probably they are right. It is a small town but little has changed since its founding in in mid 1800's. They have 445 buildings on the Historic Register. It is 50 miles west of St. Louis and on the Missouri River edge. The town has origins from Spanish days of ruling in 1700's. Daniel Boone families spread out to this area in early 1800's, and by 1814, there was a ferry crossing over the river. That solidified the town, and it now has 13,000 residents.
