"Don't just see the sites, hit the open road of the Meeting of the Great Rivers Scenic Byway all around Alton and experience it all firsthand. Escape in time to be a part of history as you embark on the journey westward with Lewis & Clark. Shop Alton's "Antique Row" and the surrounding communities for one-of-a-kind finds. Let the river lure you into an outdoor adventure of canoeing, kayaking, boating or fishing. Lace up your hiking boots or mount your bike to escape down the path less travelled on the numerous trails found throughout the region. Sneak away to tee off on the greens at some of St. Louis' best golf courses. You don't need to escape to the big city for a night out on the town. Live music, performing arts, cultural centers, casino gaming and legendary nightlife are calling you."
