Steamboat History & Education
How to start learning steamboat history? Read Mark Twain's "Life on the Mississippi ". Ride a true steamboat, like the Str. NATCHEZ at New Orleans, the BELLE OF LOUISVILLE at Louisville, KY, the JULIA BELLE SWAIN at La Crosse, WI. Book a night's stay on the historic DELTA QUEEN hotel at Chattanooga. Visit steamboat museums and steamboat related places along the rivers - see The Steamboat Traveller guidebook for such places.
