365 Things to Do in Memphis #207: Check the Water Level
Assignment #207 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to head to the Riverwalk and see the river levels sign.
The sign is big – big enough to see from the water – and it lets sailors know which direction the river is moving. For example, in the picture above, the river is 6 feet below sea level and falling.
You can find it about halfway down the Riverwalk, which is a paved sidewalk runs along the bluff overlooking the Mississippi from about Union Ave. to South Bluffs.
