Very close to the bottom of Beale Street,, so easy to include in our walks around the more famous areas. Glad we did. The river is always interesting. And we parked here when on the river cruise too.

While the sunset is pretty and free from this perch, most all places downtown have a nice view of the river and sunset.

Tom Lee Park is a great walk along the mighty Mississippi, and a great place to meet people, as there are always people there hanging out, walking, having picnics, watching the sunset, or doing the obstacle course.

Absolutely! There were many picnic benches and if you take a blanket you can relax right by the river.
