Follow in the steps of Lewis and Clark, bordering the river route they forged 200 years ago. From Missouri to Kansas and up to Nebraska and Iowa, the journey slips from riverside to small-town America and even past a few urban sights. Travelers can sample jazz and country music jams, hike or bike riverside trails, and trace the pioneers' wagon trails.
