Journey Back in Time on a Paddlewheel River Boat Down the Mississippi River
The sound of the paddle as it pushes the boat up the river is relaxing as you hear the history of the Mississippi River and her tributaries. There is no other way to get the picture of how commerce and passengers traveled up and down this massive waterway.
Fabulous food, interesting stops along the way, entertaining music and meeting new friends makes this a trip for any ages.
Who takes passengers back in a time of historic grandeur?

The only way to really get “into” the Mississippi experience is to listen to selected experts. Through informal lectures, open discussions and activities, they bring local history, nature and culture alive with their knowledge and passion for American heritage.
These enlighteners, naturalists and historians also lead shore excursions while in port to give our guests behind the scenes tours of some of American’s best-kept secrets and favorite treasures. Not only will you find knowledge in these experts but a friend as well.
Bring your family or a group and let me help you go back in history.
