Muscatine, Iowa: Historic Small Town on the Mississippi River

If not for the mighty Mississippi River, there would be no Muscatine. The small city, on a series of bluffs at a large bend in the river, rose to prominence as an important trading post. But it wasn’t just traders that came here. Mark Twain lived in Muscatine briefly, and the town left an impression on him—he once reminisced, “And I remember Muscatine . . . for its summer sunsets. I have never seen any, on either side of the ocean, that equaled them.”

Today, you can watch the sun set behind the river from the Mark Twain Scenic Overlook. It’s located in the quaint downtown district, most of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Here, you’ll find plenty of shops and restaurants, the Muscatine History and Industry Center—which chronicles the city’s history as the pearl-button capital of the world—and the Mississippi Mist Fountain. Cool off on hot days by playing in the water cannon’s 30-foot-high stream. You can also stretch your legs in one of Muscatine’s 20 parks, which are interlaced with 10 miles of trails and the working historic Pine Creek Grist Mill, built in 1848.
