DAY ONE — D
Return with us to a simpler time when steamboats and paddle wheelers ruled the Mississippi River. We make our way through Wisconsin enroute to the small river town of Le Claire, IA. First we tour the Isabel Bloom Studio to see how this company maintains the legacy of artist Isabel Bloom. She has created thousands of delightful garden sculptures for retailers throughout the country and we have the opportunity for a behind-the-scenes tour. This evening we enjoy a welcome dinner at a local eatery before turning in for the night at the Holiday Inn Express.
DAY TWO — B, L, D
Board the Riverboat Twilight for our two day excursion up the Mississippi River. A continental breakfast awaits you upon boarding. Lunch and dinner meals will be served to you by the friendly crew at your reserved table. Beautiful scenery, activities and relaxation are all for you to enjoy as the boat winds its way upstream. From shallow marshes teaming with wildlife to palisades and high cliffs pass as we approach mining country. The Captain will point out sights of interest along the way and explain “locking through” procedures as we negotiate locks and dams. Showtime each afternoon features folk musicians, humorists and perhaps an appearance by Mark Twain himself! Browse the gift shop or enjoy your favorite cocktail at the bar. Ending day one of our cruise we check into the Grand Harbor Resort on the banks of the river in Dubuque, IA for a well deserved rest tonight.
DAY THREE — B, L, D
We have a free morning to enjoy the National Mississippi River Aquarium & Museum adjacent to our hotel. Then we’re back on board the Riverboat Twilight for another day of adventure and history on the mighty Mississippi River. Heading downstream we enjoy the company of river barges, houseboats, pleasure craft and workboats on the third largest river system in the world. The Mississippi was once a highway for French traders, fur trappers and European settlers in the 18th Century. Continental breakfast, lunch dinner and snacks throughout the day with entertainment and fun keep us busy. We return to Le Claire, IA to meet our Lamers coach and transfer to the nearby Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn Express for another relaxing night.
DAY FOUR — B, L
Beginning our journey home we travel through Illinois for a tour of Starved Rock State Park. We enjoy an included luncheon in the Parks’ historic lodge in the main dining room. Entering Wisconsin our fellow travelers say goodbye as we head home with wonderful memories of the Twilight Riverboat and the mighty Mississippi River.
