Tour Information

Nestled along the western banks of the mighty Mississippi River lays the city of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. It’s a community
rich in history and heritage. For more than 250 years, people have been drawn to Cape Girardeau and the river on which
it lies. Stroll along the riverfront, where the passion that led Mark Twain to write so eloquently about Cape Girardeau in
Life on the Mississippi, the inspiration that Gen. Ulysses S. Grant used to lead with firm conviction as he took command
of the Union Army in the historic downtown, and the warmth and hospitality that community founder Louis Lorimier
extended to Lewis and Clark while on the journey of a lifetime as they set forth on their Corps of Discovery to explore the
Louisiana Purchase will be prominent.
