THE BIG MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI ROAD TRIP FUN TIME ON BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER

Saturday, July 13th

Portage De Sioux, MO – Grafton, IL

 

Please join us for a fun time seeing the Mississippi River from both sides. We will meet at 10:30 a.m. at Hardee’s Red Burrito, located at 2701 MO-94, St. Charles, MO. It is then about a 20-minute drive to Mike’s LaRosa Cabana Bar at the river’s edge Marina in Portage De Sioux. Enjoy a cool drink and a snack and check out the bluffs along the River Road from the Missouri side of the river.From there we will caravan a couple of miles to the Grafton Ferry, which will carry us over to the Illinois side. This is a fun way to cross the Mississippi River. The ride is approximately 10 minutes or less and the cost is $8 per car. People are allowed to get out of their vehicles during the trek across the river. One may even see the rainbow’s end from this ferry.Then it’s on to The Loading Dock at 401 Front St., Grafton, IL 62037. Once the area’s best-kept secret, The Loading Dock has become known as a top St. Louis destination. It features sweeping views of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers, outdoor dining, live music, and overnight accommodations. For our event, the band currently scheduled is “Exit 52”. They are a variety band that plays everything from '80s to current country/pop. They play Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, ACDC, Poison, to The Band Perry, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum and all in between. Dancing, dancing and more dancing allowed.The day ends with a ride home along the Great River Road on the Illinois side toward Alton and across the bridge back to St. Louis. You’ll feel like you’ve been a million miles away from the ordinary at the end of this staycation kind of day.Please RSVP to Ceci Bartels at [email protected] by July 3rd.
