Let us guide your group to NW Minnesota and the birthplace of the mighty Mississippi River. Stand next to a large pine log carved with yellow letters that marks the beginning of the great river’s 2,552-mile route across America, from Minnesota’s north woods to the Gulf of Mexico. This itinerary will take you from the Headwaters, past the confluence with the Missouri and into St Louis and the Gateway Arch.
Today, experience the magic of the Mighty Mississippi River with the rich history and scenic views in a way you will always remember aboard the Celebration Belle. Become Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn for the day!
Step back in time with a visit to the Amana Colonies, one of America’s longest-lived communal societies, located in the Iowa Prairie. Established shortly before the Civil War by a group of German-speaking European settlers, today the Colonies represent the American Dream come true; a thriving community founded by faith and community spirit.
