How many cities could claim to be home to a floating McDonald’s?

Only one – St. Louis. For more than 20 years starting in March 1980, the fast-food giant made a home on Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard on a barge designed to resemble a paddle-wheeler.

The Great Flood of 1993 didn’t kill it; time did. In November 2000, the restaurant said it was just too expensive and not justified to do the renovations the restaurant needed.

  1. That place was a tourist trap. The flood didn’t kill the McDonald’s boat, but it did a number on the Burger King boat.
