Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2019

In June 2019, my wife and I took the American Queen paddle wheeler on a one-week trip down the Mississippi River. Trip went from Memphis to New Orleans (the Deep South).

I rate this trip as an overall 5 (on a scale of 5), based on its distinctive niche for educational travel.

The Mississippi River is America’s other “Route 66.” You can see it from shore by driving yourself along the Great River Road. Or you can see it from the water on a riverboat like the American Queen.
