MT – Day 2 – Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, Sioux City, IA

Five photos in this post. 

On our way up I29 through Iowa, we stopped at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Sioux City. What a GREAT find! I had looked this up on Trip Advisor before coming here and also checked with them to make sure their parking was suitable for big rigs. PLENTY of room!

The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is very well done providing a great history lesson for both young and old. There is plenty of room to move around and some of the characters come “alive” due to animatronics. Outside there are some incredible sculptures. We did not see the “DO NOT CLIMB” until it was too late! Oops!

The trees around here have MASSIVE trunks:

Here is a smaller one that has been carved:

Close by there is a picnic pavilion, park and the rather unusual Welcome Center and museum set in the Sergeant Floyd. Caleb had an absolute blast as you are allowed to touch all the original instruments to pilot the boat.

ALL of this was FREE! What a great deal!

Now we know why we LOVE the west! GORGEOUS weather, low humidity and cooler temps. SO pleasant to be outside. NOPE, not planning on moving here as have do desire to do winter here but sure can understand why folks come north in the summer.

We are in Mitchell, SD tonight. Will share more tomorrow.
