Tour Description:

Relax into the heat, history, and hospitality of the Southern Mississippi on this week-long riverboating experience. Highlights Include:

  • Spend your first night dancing around Memphis, Home of the Blues and the Birthplace of Rock and Roll, before embarking on the luxurious and stately American Queen.
  • In Arkansas, explore the legendary Battle of Helena; or just sit back and take in an installment of King Biscuit Time, the nation’s longest-running blues radio program.
  • Vicksburg, the “Red Carpet City of the South,” offers up a unique combination of old and new; while a rich, multicultural heritage defines Mississippi’s former capital city of Natchez, one of the oldest European settlements in the area.
  • Wander among the 140-plus historically registered buildings in St. Francisville and the 300-year-old oak trees in the Oak Alley plantation before disembarking the American Queen in the wild and wonderful city of New Orleans.
