Great River Road 11 – Muscatine to Hannibal

Our next stop on the Rollin Down the River Tour was Fort Madison, IA. The visitor center is also a museum. The volunteers gave us the grand tour. There is a lot of civic pride in Fort Madison.

After our tour of the museum and waterfront we were off to downtown and lunch at the Ivy Bake Shoppe & Cafe. What a fun place this was. Made from scratch meals and tempting desserts all lined up at the cashier.

After lunch we hopped back on the bikes and made a quick stop by the old prison. Parts of this prison date back to the 1800’s.
