  • If you get in the area, you have to stop at this memorial. Great history of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. My wife and I spent around an hour there and the views are gorgeous. Lots of information on ...  more »

  • My husband is a Lewis and Clark expedition fan and we went to the monument to show our respect Srg Floyd. The monument is nice but it's located in an area of town that is not kept up very well. There are a few signs to read that give interesting information about the expedition. One was almost unreadable due to scratches on the fiberglass sign. There are a few benches to sit on overlooking the water...and industrial buildings. It was pretty hot when we went and there isn't a lot of shade so we read the signs and the multiple plaques on the monument in memory all the people who were involved with getting the monument read, and then left. It was nice to visit but is definitely a quick stop kind of place. Small parking area but there is a restroom.
  • Coming from Washington, D.C., it made us feel a bit closer to home to see an obilisk at this site. Though not as big as the famous monument in our neck of the woods, it stands for a lot, and reading about its history was really interesting. Plus, the views were gorgeous. Highly recommend a visit here!
  • Good view of the river. Overlooks I-29. Hard to imagine what the site looked like in Lewis and Clark's era when they buried Sgt. Floyd in this area.
  • Beautiful monument and walk down a little to the west and you will see a great view of the river and the area below. I always stop here when I am in town.
  • A miniature Washington Monument. It seems like if Floyd had not died in Sioux City, it would barely be on the map. The Floyd name is everywhere.
