Discover how the Mississippi River shaped America’s heartland on this paddle wheel riverboat journey through the Upper Mississippi’s autumn landscape. Enjoy a one-night hotel stay in St. Louis, the “Gateway City,” and then embark in Alton. Set sail for Hannibal—this town offers interpretive exhibits that celebrate its favorite son, Samuel Clemens (a.k.a., Mark Twain), as well as beautifully preserved buildings showcasing small-town living of days gone by. Continue to Clinton, Iowa. Once regarded as the nation’s lumber capital, the town illustrates its story at the popular Sawmill Museum and offers access to the region’s Windmill Cultural Center, highlighting midwestern Dutch heritage. Spend a day exploring Dubuque’s vibrant riverfront and enjoy breathtaking views atop the historic Fenelon Place Elevator. Take in the fall colors along the bluffs of the bustling city of La Crosse, Wisconsin. Seek out the renowned brewing establishments here, or spend time discovering this former lumber boomtown’s history in its engaging museums and nineteenth-century buildings. Before bidding farewell to the American Countess, cruise to Red Wing, MN and spend a day exploring the museums and galleries that preserve the story emblematic of the ingenuity and potential of small-town America.
