We were lucky to see the panel that said: Mississippi River while we were on the bridge. I took quickly some pictures, as it was attractive. I saw the Mississippi River, some mountains and a nice view. Worthwhile to see!

Magazine street starting uptown around Washington Street is great for interesting shopping with cool places to stop for snacks and drinks. The WWII museum is very interesting, especially the newest parts. You have the time, so make sure you visit City Park which you can get to via the Canal Street streetcar. There you can see the art museum and the adjacent sculpture garden, and have coffee and beignets at Morning Call which is, I think, better than Cafe du Monde. The Presbytère on Jackson...More
Fishing Near Red Wing Treasure Island Casino (1 Replies)
We will be visiting Red Wing next week, the middle of July staying at the Treasure Island Casino. We want to try fishing and exploring a little of the Mississippi River near there. We need advice on where to, how to fish, any places to explore. We don't have a large boat, a 16 foot bass boat so would like some protected bay type areas. Thanks.

Hi We have recently returned from a trip that took in some of the places you mentioned. I will be brief but would definitely recommend a few days in New Orleans. We were there only briefly for an NFL game and then returned another afternoon for a visit to the museum in Jackson Square that has the Katrina exhibit but we have vowed to return for much longer. Nashville and Memphis are a given and you must visit these cities,each for a couple of days. We are not big country music fans but...More
