Nice place with lots of helpful information for tourists. Nice park with view of river and tables if you want to picnic. Next to the Bass Pro pyramid, so you might as well stop by.

It was an awesome place, right on the river, had lots of shade and was family friendly. It had a lot of information about the city and surrounding communities.

They were able to answer all my questions and provided information needed. They are located near the Bass Pro Shop and the foot of the bridge.

We really enjoyed this stop and gathered some useful info for our trip. The views of the Mississippi River and bridge alone are worth the stop.

The welcome center is located next to the Bass Pro Shop Pyramid. It's clean with a friendly staff. And you have to get a selfie in front of Elvis!
