You can easily see the 100' white stone obelisk which sits atop Floyd's Bluff from I-29, but if you have time take exit 243 and follow the signs north to the top of the hill. The monument is free, open year round and has interpretive signs telling of the death of Floyd, his funeral and burial, and the visit on... More

This is a cool monument, nothing terribly fancy about it, there's really nothing much else to see besides the monument itself and a few other plaques, but the area is pretty, it's clean and well maintained. Cool views of the city from up there and the plaques give a little more history of the Lewis and Clark expedition. There is... More

The only soldier to die on the Lewis and Clark Expedition is commemorated with this monument. It rises above the Missouri River and overlooks the city reminding everyone who visits of the impressive task undertaken by this group.

I've stopped by here several times over the years. If you are driving by and need to stretch your legs you can't get a better view. There is information on the history in the area. Take a minute to stop and take it all in. There is no charge.

Striking monument to the explorers and to Sgt Charles Floyd who died on the trip. Worth a stop for the marker and the spectacular view West across the river.

Great view of the river from the bluff. Historic memorial of the kind you would expect to find in New England or DC.

Don't just drive by. Great scenic outlook over Missouri river. Good place to stretch and take a break from driving.

It seems incredible that with all of the hardships and difficulties of the three-year expedition of the "Corps of Discovery" (Lewis and Clark), only one man died, Sergeant Floyd, and that early in the expedition, from appendicitis. I consider this monument as much a memorial to the fantastic "luck" and pluck of the whole expedition as it is to the... More
