They say that travel is about the journey, not the destination. While there’s plenty of room to argue that destinations really do matter, there’s no disputing that going on a journey is one of the most enriching experiences you can have.

When it comes to travel in America, perhaps the greatest journeys to be taken are steamboat cruises on the Mississippi. Riding the current of this remarkable artery through America’s heartland will show you an unfolding story that covers centuries of history, much of which has played a central role in making the country what it is today.

For a journey down the Mississippi, how you travel is an important factor.

A raft was good enough for Huck Finn, but most Southeast Texas senior citizens appreciate more comfort.

A steamboat captures the “Huck Finn” vibe with a lot more conveniences.

Traveling by steamboat on the Mississippi River itself provides not only spectacular views, but also captures the ambiance of our American history. Instead of driving roads adjacent to the river, you’ll be plying the same waterways that river traffic has followed for hundreds of years.

Does this sound like your kind of travel dream?

The Texas Vacation Lady loves to help her Golden Triangle seniors plan spectacular vacation getaways – in the US and internationally.

A Mississippi River steamboat cruise combines some of the best elements of historic and modern travel. These floating monuments of architecture can instantly transport you back in time, as you travel the same way people did during the heyday of Mississippi river cruises. The Mississippi River steamboats of today have elegant suites, excellent food, and attentive staff. One of the most distinctive vessels travelers can choose is the American Queen, the largest flat-bottomed paddlewheel steamboat ever built.
