My best friend and I are doing a road trip next week, traveling north-bound between St. Louis and Iowa City along the Mississippi. I would like to (roughly) stick to scenic routes, traveling along MO 79 and IL 100/96. I am from Central IL but do not know a lot about this area, though I have checked out this site
and a few others
. We will be staying in Alton and visiting the City Museum in St. Louis. I'm looking for recommendations on diners/restaurants, swimming holes (please!), and any can't-miss sights in the region. Thanks, MeFi!
