The cruise will start in St. Louis where you will have plenty of time to visit the Arch and other local attractions.
One of the first stops is in Hannibal, Missouri. You will have time to stroll through the quaint river town that inspired Mark Twain's major novels.
If you love architecture you'll love the stop in Davenport, IA. Be sure to see the Fred B. Sharon House and the other beautiful homes in the Cork Hill and Hamburg Historic District.
Dubuque, IA is another great river town filled with beautiful 19th century architecture. Be sure to check out the Fourth Street Elevator which claims to be the shortest and steepest railroad in the world.
The cruise ends in St. Paul, MN. This large Midwest city has lots to do and see. Feel free to spend a few extra days sightseeing before returning home.
