  • To the North of the Price Dam I would suggest taking a gorgeous drive up to Grafton, MO where there's the Fin Inn. It's a restaurant with a number of fish tanks at eye level. You can eat a catfish and look one in the eye at the same time. South of Grafton there's a painting on the Mississippi Bluff of a sort of dragon known as the Piasa. To the north of Grafton there's a gorgeous lodge known at the Pere Marquette Lodge, situated in Pere Marquette State Park. Take a stop in there for a bit, relax by the fire or play a game of chess on their over-sized chess board (the pawns come to half-way up your calves). It's a gorgeous drive this time of the year, or the fall. In January and early February this area is hopping with people eagle-watching.
