Scenery

South side of the River Hwy 224 runs right next to the Missouri River where you'll get some good views of the river flowing. Later the road scenery changes (when you get on Hwy 10 & 210) to mainly farm country and some nice easy riding.

Drive Enjoyment

Minimal potholes on this trip. There are not a lot of turns but some curves. Overall its mostly easy riding.

Tourism Opportunities

This whole area is historic from Lewis & Clark, The Battle of Lexington (Civil War), Santa Fe Trail, to name a few. Nice smaller cities/towns to do some shopping along the way too.

This ended up being a real snoozer. Hwy 24 had lots of heaved sections that jar your back if you're not ready for them. Fields, flat and straight for the most part, felt like it would never end.

Highway 224 running by the river is the best part. Honestly the entire half of the ride that's north of the river has very little going for it. South of the river there's wineries, vineyards, orchards, small town Americana, and just enough curve in the road to keep you awake. The best thing to say about the route north of the river is that it is relaxing in a turn-your-cruise-control-on-and-your-mind-off kind of way. Not bad, but not great.
