The Day Cruise In Iowa That Will Make Your Summer Stupendous

Back in the old days, the Mississippi River was full of riverboats and paddle-wheelers transporting people and goods up and down the Iowa coast. Today, you can still find several of these ships making their rounds, but on stunning, full day cruises rather than transportation missions. For one of the best day cruises in Iowa, set sail on the Riverboat Twilight.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

To book your trip on this beautiful vessel, visit the Riverboat Twilight website, here. The one day cruise is offered on August 31, September 1, 2 and 3, and October 26, 27 and 28. In addition to one day cruises, the Riverboat Twilight offers 1.5 hour sightseeing tours and a full, two day excursion from Le Claire to Dubuque, where you’ll tour the National Museum of the Mississippi River. Book your cruise early, as these often sell out!
