HARTFORD — The Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower, 435 Confluence Tower Drive, will hold another in a series of Twilight Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m. May 26.
Admission of $5 per person includes unlimited trips to the 180-foot tower’s three viewing platforms at 50, 100 and 150 feet. Visitors are encouraged to bring cameras and binoculars for viewing.
Visitors will be able to view the spring sunset over the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. Guests should check sunset times to plan their trip.
“The view of the sunset from the top of the tower is breathtaking,” said Don Russell, longtime tower volunteer. “It’s the greatest place to be if you want to sit back and enjoy the view unfold in front of you. Visitors can make memories they’ll never want to forget.”
The tower is open five days a week. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Guided daily tours are available throughout the day. Admission is $4 for adults, $3 for adults 62 and older, active military and military veterans; $2 for children 12 and younger and free admission for children two and younger. Group rates are available for 12 or more people and reservations can be made by calling the Alton Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau at (618) 465-6676.
Spring tower events are sponsored by SMS Engineers.
