The Mighty Mississippi River's annual rise is occurring once again, and downtown is the best place to view this phenomenon! Although the rise is occurring earlier this year, you do not have long before the waters begin to recede with this annual rite of spring. Use the coming weeks to experience the power of the Mississippi River along the levee promenade. You can now access the levee promenade from 3 downtown locations: South Boulevard, Riverfront Plaza, and River Road at Florida Street.
Thousands of people have made their way to the levee to experience the river this past weekend. While downtown, take in some of the riverfront attractions, restaurants, levee path routes for biking, jogging or walking and special downtown events. See links below and join in the fun!
