Free Things to Do: Taking advantage of an island that sprang up in the Mississippi in the early 20th century, this park offers a variety of attractions - and the Riverpark and walk over the bridge are both free, from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The museum, however, requires admission fees. Along the island, the River Walk, a scale model of the Mississippi's path, allows visitors to follow the Big Muddy from its start in Minnesota to its final destination, the Gulf of Mexico. The flow of the model river mimics that of the real one. The Mud Island amphitheater attracts top names in music, a monorail offers fun overviews of the area, and bike and pedal boat rentals provide energetic folks the chance to venture further afield.
