Southern Grandeur

Civil War battlefields & hoppin’ blues bars

Relax into the history and hospitality of the South on this week-long riverboat experience. Before embarking on the stately American Queen, spend the night in Memphis, a town with rich blues heritage and compelling Civil War sites. Then, travel to Vicksburg, known as the “Red Carpet City of the South,” a town that offers up an array of boutiques and museums in its charming downtown district.

Sail to Natchez, the oldest city on the Mississippi, graced with stunning gardens and palatial mansions, and then to Baton Rouge. This capital city’s unique political history is reflected in a collection of memorable landmarks, from the elegantly furnished Old Governor’s Mansion to the imposing neo-Gothic Old State Capitol. Continue to St. Francisville, a beautiful town with unique shops and historic homes to discover. Before disembarking in New Orleans, journey to Nottoway and explore the impressive halls of the largest plantation house in the South.
