      Take a cruise on a genuine Mississippi paddle wheeler. This impressive riverboat may be a replica of those that plied the river in the early 1900s, but it is actually powered by its paddlewheel (unlike most other modern-day versions, where the paddle is just for show). A variety of cruises are available, including a 90 minute sightseeing cruise with commentary on the history and wildlife of this scenic stretch of the Great River.

      If you go:
      Cruises run daily from May to October; cocktail and dinner cruises are also available.
