It was really neat to ride one of the only steam boats in existence today. I would not ride it on a very hot day though. There is not much shade unless you get to line early for covered seats.

We had a very nice time. This is one of two real steam engine paddle boats that operate on the Mississippi River. It was a truly worthwhile experience. You even get to tour the engine room.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
