The longest river is the Mississippi River, and the longest

combination is the Mississippi-Missouri River. The Missouri crosses

the central US before joining the Mississippi at St Louis.

The Mississippi itself from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico is

3779 km (2348 miles) long.

The entire Mississippi-Missouri combination, measured from

Brower's Creek in Montana to the Gulf, is a continuous waterway

more than 6027 km (3745 miles) in length.
