Join us for an autumnal jaunt up the Mississippi! While the leaves turn yellows and reds, travel with us from St. Louis to Minneapolis. Begin with a complimentary pre-cruise hotel stay in St. Louis, famous for its soaring arch. Your cruise begins in Alton, a city whose charming monuments dot the historic streets. Embark the American Countess and cruise to Hannibal, the boyhood home of Mark Twain, famously known as the setting for many of his writings.

In Bettendorf, get a glimpse of Iowa—stop in an art shop or grab a seat at a waterfront café. Then head to Dubuque, where you can pay a visit to the Dubuque Museum of Art, Iowa’s oldest cultural institution. In La Crosse, seek out a local brew pub to get a taste of the city’s long and storied history in the brewing industry. Before journey’s end, spend a day in Red Wing, a city whose pioneering story lives on in its many galleries and museums.
