The Mud Belt-Traveling the Mississippi

The Mud Belt-Traveling the Mississippi

Charlie received a skin rejuvenating mud treatment from the assistance of his sisters. He opted to pass on the haircut and upper lip wax. Sabula, IA.
They don’t call the Mississippi River the Big Muddy for nothing!

We have a new category that makes it easier to find our articles that feature communities along the greatest river in the world. The Mississippi River stretches through some of the greatest regions our country has to offer and the best part of The Mud Belt is right here in Iowa. There is no other stretch along its banks that captures the Mississippi experience better than between the two Iowa towns of New Albin and Keokuk.

Team Goodvin has explored all over the Iowa’s riverbanks. Places like Sabula-Iowa’s only island community. Traveling through the woods and discovering BBQ near Clinton.

Discovering amazing history and architecture in Keokuk with a stay at the beautiful bed and breakfast known as the Grand Anne. A Mother’s Day trip to Balltown, home to Breitbach’s Country Dining-Iowa’s oldest restaurant.

We’ve made trips to Dubuque‘s National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium,stayed at on of Al Capone’s old haunts, and hiked the Mines of Spain.

Our travels along the Big Muddy included several trips to the Quad Cities area communities of DavenportLeClaire, and Bettendorf. Exploring the great outdoors in Louisa County and Muscatine. Let’s not forget about some of the best Steaks, biscuits & gravytacos, and quite possibly one of the biggest fish sandwiches we’ve ever seen.

We’ve only begun to travel The Mud Belt and we can’t wait to show you more of our adventures. Team Goodvin will see you on The Iowa Gallivant!
