After enjoying the beautiful river views in the daylight, be sure to take a look at the Norbert F. Beckey Bridge — the only bridge over the Mississippi River that has LED lights.
Completed in December 1972, it replaced the Muscatine High Bridge, which stood from 1891-1973. A pillar from the old High Bridge still stands at Riverside Park in Muscatine. The bridge, which stretches 1,500 feet from Iowa to Rock Island County, Illinois, across the Mississippi River, is awash in a rainbow of colors and lights up the night. Mark Twain might have seen his most beautiful sunsets in Muscatine, but modern residents and visitors to this historic river town now have their own light show to enjoy.
