The Great River Road

The Great River Road is America’s greatest drive. It’s a collection of state and federal highways that combine to form a National Scenic Byway that follows the Mississippi River for nearly 3,000 miles (4,800 kilometers) from the river’s headwaters in northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. Along the way, motorists will find scenic overlooks, historical sites, unique museums and much more.
