Miniature Mississippi.

Mud Island

Lower 954 miles of the Mississippi reproduced outdoors, in cement, in miniature. Splash along like Gulliver for thousands of feet and end at a miniature Gulf of Mexico, then rent a pedal boat shaped like a swan.

Mud Island was outstanding. Great for kids. Be ready to let them get wet as they check out the Mississippi River.

This was the best thing I did in Memphis. What a great way to cool off on a May day.

[Heather, 05/14/2015]

Walking the entirely length of the Mississippi River barefooted is refreshing, as long as you don't stumble on a topographic ledge and trip over a bridge.
