The U.S. is blessed to have so many cities with rivers. Which U.S. river city do you like the most? What river cities would you rank in 2nd and 3rd place?

Saint Louis and Memphis are cool river cities.

Every May the Memphis Symphony plays a pops concert on the banks of the Mississippi River as the sun sets. Their grand finale is always "Old Man River" and the crowd goes NUTS. I think one year it had something like a dozen encores. They truly do love that river, and with Beale Street right there just a block from the river, it's a happenin' part of town.

How could Louisville be left off a list of river cities?

Do these have to be major Rivers, like the Mississippi?
1.) Des Moines - Des Moines River & Raccoon River.
2.) Davenport - Mississippi River.
3.) Omaha - Missouri River.

When I think "river city" I think of St Louis, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Memphis, New Orleans, Louisville. Smaller cities I think of are Paducah, Cape Giraudeau, Frankfort, and Huntington & Charleston WV.

I know New York & DC, etc are on rivers, but does that make them a "river city" in of the same manner of the ones I mentioned? 99% of US cities are on some river or creek
