7 Incredible River Cruises You Can Only Take In Illinois

When most people think of a cruise, they think of life on the open ocean, but you can get a boating experience just as good, if not better, right here in Illinois.

Travel the rivers the way Mark Twain used to as you wind up and down the Mississippi River or make your way through one of the greatest cities in the U.S. on the Chicago River. From riverboats to yachts, and day trips to extended excursions, you can travel nearly the entire state by waterway.
