Welcome to the Town of Warsaw
Have you ever ached for a place where the river ran south every morning? Have you ever wished there was only 1 stop light on the way to work? How about a place where silence was the norm and sidewalks allowed you to walk? A town where you can powerwalk along the river and celebrate with a bloody-mary any time of the day? Come visit Warsaw. We are across the Mississippi River from Alexandria, MO and Keokuk, IA. If you are travelling by car, we are just off Hwy 96 on The Great River Road. Motorcyclists love Warsaw and we love motorcyclists. A great place to get off the bike, stretch the legs and grab a bite to eat. 4 restaurants and 6 bars to choose from. Pick up a walking tour guide at the visitor center and take a self guided tour around Warsaw by foot or bicycle. Order your food to go and sit down by the river or take a nature walk through Kibbe Environmental Park. Eagles, deer, osprey, herons are all things you might see sitting at the river’s edge. We have history from 1812 and many generations of Mississippi River life on the Great River Road. Fishermen, hunters, outfitters, nature-walkers, geode hunters, geode cachers, weekend road trippers love Warsaw!
