Longest Rivers in the US

America is a land of geographical diversities. The water discharge of Rocky mountains and the Great Lakes flows through the Great Plains of America. The Missouri River, the longest river in North America, rises from the Rocky Mountains of western Montana. The river flows southeast for 2,540 miles before joining the Mississippi River north of St. Louis in Missouri state.

Lauded in many literary works, the river Mississippi is the chief river of the largest drainage system in the North American continent. Its headwaters lie in northern Minnesota and the river flows southwards for 2,340 miles to reach the Gulf of Mexico. Native Americans have lived along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers and its tributaries for centuries.

The Yukon River is a major watercourse of northwestern North America. The lower half of this river lies in Alaska. The Rio Grande in Texas is one of the major rivers in the southwestern US. The Saint Lawrence River is the primary drainage outflow of the Great Lakes Basin.

The Arkansas River, Colorado River, Ohio River, Red River, and Columbia River are among the longest rivers in the US.
