Interesting murals give significant events of area over hundreds of years; others honor famous persons who were born or lived in Missouri. Plenty of convenient free parking on weekend we were there. Also within walking distance to restaurants.

Walking along the Mississippi River in downtown Cape Girardeau, came upon this outstanding muriel painted on the flood wall on the shoreline. Very talented artists decorated this wall, that could have been an eyesore otherwise.

Visitors seem to always enjoy seeing this attraction, which is in the historic downtown district of our city. Many little shops, and restaurants within a city block, along with awesome views of the mighty Mississippi River.

Weather was very cold or we would have walked along the wall. A lot of very interesting history. Maybe we will get a chance next time.

The Missouri Wall of Fame is not an event, per se, but large wall art you can view as you are walking along Water Street in Cape Girardeau. As the name implies, the large painted walls highlight famous folks from Missouri!
