The river does not run through the whole US: it only runs through a few states. But you can travel from very near the northernmost point of the US (Minnesota) to one of the southernmost points (Louisiana delta).
The Missouri River (a western tributary of the Mississippi) is slightly longer and passes through a larger number of states, but is not nearly as navigable.
Yes and no. You could from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes, but not across to CA or the west coast. It will mainly take you through the center of the country.
No u cannot travel the whole entire length of the us from the Mississippi river
No, the Mississippi River does not run the full length of the US, but merely through a few states.
No, Even though the river basin covers a lot of the USA the Mississippi river and its tributaries do not go far enough east or west to allow you to travel the whole length.
No it only goes to the width
Yes its possible if u are skilled
A person traveling down the Mississippi River from north to south in the United States can travel almost the entire length of America. The Mississippi River originates in Minnesota at Lake Itasca, which is south of the Canadian border.
No, because it stops short of the top of the United States.
yes because you can go on boat around the whole world this is from Laura jenkins
no. the Mississippi only runs through some of the us. so really.....it's kinda impossible no
The first European to sail the whole length of the Mississippi River was French explorer Robert de LaSalle. He was sent by King Louis XIV in 1682, and traveled south from Canada, down the Mississippi River, to the Gulf of Mexico.
No. You can only go from New Orleans to Lake Itasca in Minnesota, about 150 miles from the Canadian border.
No, because a river always has a source, and as you get closer to it, the river is blocked by locks, dams, or channels. More than 2000 miles of the Mississippi is used by barges, ships, and boats of many sizes, along a winding path from Minneapolis to New Orleans (1600 miles apart) and out into the delta.
Not quite. It starts about 115 miles south of the Canadian border at Lake Itasca, MN- so you would not cover the part of the US between the start and the border.
Yes, the whole state of TN is east of the MS river.
In the whole world, the biggest river is the Amazon River in South America. In the United States, the biggest river is the Mississippi River.
The Nile and the Amazon are the two longest rivers.
Not quite. The Mississippi river flows through many US states, and some of its tributaries extend into the Canadian border, specifically at the Lake Ontario (New York) or into the Canada-Montana border, as well as into the Gulf of Mexico. If you define the Gulf of Mexico as a border, it would be considered as a border-to-border river, however most borders are defined as the division lines between countries, not between a country an an ocean or sea.
there is 12 bridges over the river tyne!!!
No, the river runs from the northern regions southward to the ocean into the Gulf of Mexico. While it does cover a large area, it is but a linear segment of a large and diverse country spanning the entire continent East-West.
It has the 4th clearest drinking water in the whole world. It's in Mississippi! MORE THAN 500 people pass this river (like on their way to work or something) every hour!
Probably The AMAZON RIVER. I have heard that it takes up to 3 years to walk the whole length.
Because it was the principal highway to move men and supplies the whole length of the country, from the blockade-runner's port of New Orleans right up into the heart of the Union.
The Missouri. In fact, the "whole thing" is often referred to as the Missouri-Mississippi river system. It's huge, and is the largest river system in North America, and one of the largest ones in the world. You can find a link to an informative article below.
