Canoe the Mississippi River Near 4Marq Apartments

If you are looking for something really different, why not seek an outdoor adventure? Paddle the Mississippi River! Lucky for you, 4Marq Apartments are only a short ways away from this natural wonder.  Wilderness Inquiry offers half-day guided canoe trips that are easy, affordable and fun. The trips take place in the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area (MNRRA) ensuring that you will see wildlife and get to experience this incredible historic river snaking right through the city.

Each 24-foot Voyager canoe holds 6-10 people. Paddling distance is 4-8 miles depending on the selected route, and will take 3-4 hours to complete (about 2 hours of paddling). While not strenuous, it is a quite active pace but still suitable for children. Experienced guides will offer historical information and answer questions. Look carefully and you may spot pelicans, egrets and bald eagles. River otters playfully splash along the shore. It is a rare experience to be so close to nature in such close proximity to an urban area. While you may cross the Mississippi in your daily travels, the perspective from the river is nothing short of spectacular. Take this trip and you will never look at the river from above in the same way again.

Trips are $45 for adults, $30 for youth. Some of their summer trips are already booked. Don’t miss your chance to ride the river right in your own back yard. Take a peaceful trip down the Mississippi this season. Slow down. Listen to the gentle rippling of the water. Watch the falcons soar. Let the city melt away for a few hours. All this – just minutes away from your home at 4Marq Apartments.
