Known as "The World's Innermost Port", the little town was extremely important in the steamboat era as supplies would be delivered from cities like Kansas City, St. Louis, and as far south as New Orleans.

The town is also home to the Fort Benton Historic District with several well-preserved buildings. So whether you plan a nice walk along the Missouri River or a delicious dinner and a stay at their historic hotel, maybe a trip to Fort Benton should be in your future.
