Why Don’t We Make More Out of Our Mississippi Riverfront?
The Mighty Mississippi runs right through at least a few St Cloud area cities, yet we only hear about the river when they are pulling some poor soul out of it. A lot of cities have beautiful river walks with bars, restaurants and shops right on the banks of their rivers. San Antonio,Texas comes to mind. They have a great river walk that draws many people daily to it's riverbanks. Granted it would be a huge project but not making use of it seems like a waste to me. Just fill up some of the river bank property with some great restaurants, maybe (for sure) some bars and shopping outlets, you know, like mom & pop type stores. So, big shot developers, get on it and let's see some progress on this. I for one, would be a frequent visitor. Maybe to make it more exciting, we could have a zip line across the river and people could zip line back and forth between bars. Just a thought.
