    Mississippi means great river and truly it's one of the more important rivers of the world the fourth longest with 2,320 miles (3,730 km).Great Natural wonders reminds me how small we are.

    Wouldn't suggest it for a swimming spot... I wish they'd have kept the gondola from the '84 Worlds Fair. Of course, it only properly functioned about 55% of the time even when it was new! Lol!

    Had a nice peaceful view. Look out for people try to forcefully clean/polish your shoes and trying to take money off you.

    Common scams: "I can tell you where you got those shoes." (Where you're standing = New Orleans), "I can tell you how many letters in your last name" (your last name = 12).
