The Missouri Wall of Fame in downtown Cape Girardeau, MO offers a nice walk with cool breezes from the Mississippi River. Enjoy reading the history, and seeing all the famous people from our state.

Before heading to Nashville. Each panel of the mural is accompanied by the story behind it. A light rain curbed our stay to 20 minutes and only a few panels. A large sidewalk assures access for all.

It was nice to see that the graffiti was kept to a minimum and the walk was clean. Very relaxing walk I liked the information that was given on the wall.

Walk along the wall to see a mural of Missouri history. You don't need to spend a lot of time here (you can see the entire wall in about 15 minutes). It's a must see if in the area.

Our flood wall is not only pretty with murals and the history of this area, it is holding back the mighty Mississippi River. It can hold back up to 53 feet of floodwater.

Every time we visit our family in Jackson we go down to Old Town Cape, right on the river. We think the wall is impressive and the murals are interesting. Old Town is great, antique stores, restaurants it's always fun to peruse.
