Last weekend my husband and I took the 3 day, 2 night trip from Peoria to St. Louis...two days on the Illinois River, one on the Mississippi. The Illinois was remarkably unspoiled, with trees lining both banks and birds galore: eagles, herons, gulls, pelicans and more. It's a narrow, winding river, which adds to its beauty. The Mississippi, in contrast, is broad and straight, more developed yet well-worth experiencing.
Enough can't be said of the entire crew...dining room ladies, deck hands, entertainers...all hard-working and eager to please their guests. Thanks to all of them for one of the most enjoyable trips we've ever taken.
