The Clearest River In Missouri Is Almost Too Beautiful To Be Real
Missouri is full of beautiful rivers, lakes, and streams. However, we are likely best known for the Mississippi, a.k.a The Big Muddy. The Mississippi River is one of the most polluted rivers in the nation and it’s certainly not getting better soon. Needless to say, the Mississippi is one river you’d never want to boat or fish in. Luckily, Missouri is also home to some of the cleanest, most pristine rivers. Head to the Missouri Ozarks and find a crystal clear river that is perfect for swimming, fishing, boating, and more!
