Fall floats: Grab a canoe or kayak and paddle these Missouri and Illinois waterways

{{featured_button_text}}

Float trips are an annual rite of a Missouri summer. But the best time to enjoy the scenery and the wildlife from a canoe or a kayak may be the fall when it is cooler, colorful foliage is emerging, there are fewer insects and, best of all, the crowds are gone.

Explore the calm waters of a cypress tree swamp, take a lazy float down a Missouri river, canoe the Mighty Mississippi or kayak a peaceful lake. All four of these trips are close enough to do as day trips, and amid travel restrictions and quarantines, the best river might just be somewhere nearby.
