Join us as we travel to La Crosse and step back in time. Our first stop is to pick up our La Crosse County historical guide. We begin our 90 minute narrated bus tour of the beautiful riverfront, historic districts & scenic parks. We learn how the city became established in 1856.
The highlight of our day is a 3-Hour Lunch Cruise on the “La Crosse Queen,” a modern-day replica of the grand river boats that used to ply the Mississippi River in the 1900’s. She is one of the few “true” paddlewheelers still in operation in the country today. You will be able to sit back and enjoy one of the most scenic stretches of the Mississippi River as our narrator points out the historical and wildlife points of interest along with going through one of the oldest remaining swing bridges still in operation today.
For a very special experience we will “lock thru” Lock and Dam #7 (river conditions permitting). A tasty double entrée meal is served buffet-style for your enjoyment during the cruise.
Limited departure locations.
