Mud Island River Walk

My wife Carol and I are heading south tomorrow to meet Aaron and Jake.  We are going to stay over night in Memphis, Tennessee at Aaron's suggestion.  He and Jake stopped in Memphis and stumbled on the Mud Island River Walk.  Aaron said this is a must see.  The Mud Island River Walk is an exact scale model of the Lower Mississippi River flowing from its confluence with the Ohio River at Cairo, Illinois 954 miles south to the Gulf of Mexico.  The River Walk is one of the most unique representations of the Mississippi River in the world.


"The "1,000" mile journey concludes at the Gulf of Mexico, a one-acre enclosure that holds 1.3 million gallons of water. There, visitors can enjoy a leisurely pedal boat ride around the Gulf area with the Memphis skyline in the background".
