Nashville is home not only to country music but also to a much broader spectrum of music for everyone. New Orleans is a strange mixture of Jazz, Creole and Cajun food.  Memphis is a city of music with the famous Beale Street of entertainment with its bars where budding musicians play.

On Board the American Queen Steamboat

Posted on:

This Steamboat is a genuine paddle wheeler that sails the American mid west river system throughout the year, heading south during the winter. Some of the places it visits are; Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chattanooga, St. Paul, St Louise, Memphis and New Orleans. Cruising on this steamboat must be one of the American “must do” trips. Their food has won a Best on Board award confirming their saying that “the food alone is worth the trip”.

The boat and the furniture reflect the hey day of the paddle steamer era, taking you back in time but still keeping the advantages of our own age.

So if you are thinking of exploring the south or mid USA, why not think about booking a few days or a week aboard this iconic vessel. As you would expect, the entertainment reflects the region – jazz, blues, six piece orchestra and lectures covering the culture and history of the journey and vessel. They also include beer and wine with your dinner!

A piece of American history on the go and it is a great way to relax and keep moving.
