In March last year, on a self drive holiday to the deep south, I was lucky enough to step aboard the gorgeous and elegant American Queen Steamboat. An authentic paddlewheeler, American Queen plies the waters of the Mississippi, Ohio and Tennessee rivers throughout the year.

Lower Mississippi River
The lower stretch of the Mississippi from carefree New Orleans, Louisiana to vibrant Memphis, Tennessee is the river of legends. Inhale the sweet fragrance of magnolia blossoms and watch the essence of the South unfold around you…

Upper Mississippi River
The upper reaches of the Mississippi River from dynamic St. Louis to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul reveals hidden gems around each bend and fuels your sense of discovery as you journey through the very best of America’s Heartland…

Ohio & Tennessee Rivers
Discover America’s cultural quilt in the cities and towns of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. From Civil War battlefields, forts and homesteads to quaint main streets and friendly smiles, this region will welcome you with open arms and enrich you with its storied past…
