Best view of the Missouri in the Sioux City area. This is a tomb of the only person who died on the Lewis and Clark trip. You can imagine the journey as you stand above the Missouri River and see the vastness of the area.

I enjoyed the plaques with brief history. Easy walk to views. Looks like a mini Washington monument.

I read a little about Lewis and Clark before we started out road trip from Georgia to Seattle, so we decided to stop and see this memorial. It was well worth the stop. It should be a brief stop, since there are 3-4 info stations, the monument itself and then a very short walk to look off and see the... More

Monument to the only member of the Lewis and Clark expedition to have died on the trip. Great piece of American history; visible from I-29, accessible from US 75.

Good view of South Sioux City and the Missouri River. Nice shaded picnic tables. Has a rest room. It's not on I-29 but to get there from I-29 exit 143 Singing Hills Blvd, it's about 1 mile north on old Highway 75.

This is a rather large obelisk that faces a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, downtown Sioux City and the I-29. It's high enough for you to get a pretty nice view of the surroundings. The obelisk is a big stone tower. It's not much to look at, unless you're really into obelisks. The history behind the commemoration is more interesting... More

Great that this monument of 22 year old Sergeant Floyd was put into place. He was the only member of the Lewis & Clark expedition -- 8,000 miles -- 4 years journey to pass away.

It was rainy and cloudy on the day of our visit, but I'd read the story about Sergeant Floyd so I really wanted to stop in. We certainly couldn't see much due to the clouds and the rain, but In good weather, I think the view would be really nice. Since there's no cost, it's certainly worth a stop. There's... More

Located along Hwy 75 near the First Brides Grave, this monument is a great spot to take in the view. You can see downtown Sioux City and the wonderful I-29 construction project that is going on. The monument is the burial site for Sgt Floyd who was the only person to die during the Lewis & Clark Expedition in 1804.... More
