Let's explore the vicinity of the Mississippi River
. Enjoy the scenic locations
. Let's get to know the story of writer Mark Twain
. Let's go to the winery.
This trip will be appreciated by those who, like me, have long dreamed of visiting the picturesque towns along the Mississippi River. This is a great chance not only to visit the lakes or parks, but also to get acquainted with the culture of rock music, the childhood of the author, who gave us a fascinating story about Tom Sawyer and Geckelberry Finn, and walk around the area, recreated from the book.
A trip to the vineyard one day definitely made our lunch better, and I hope you can experience such positive impressions. This trip will definitely be an opportunity to get to know the suburbs of big cities and feel the atmosphere of real America.
