Day 1 Nashville, TN
From the legendary Grand Ole Opry to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville is the official headquarters of country music. The lively streets are lined with art galleries and unique shops that welcome you at every turn. Consider touring The Hermitage, the home of President Andrew Jackson, the gardens of Cheekwood where more than 55,000 tulips bloom in the spring, or Gaylord Opryland's nine acres of indoor gardens and waterfalls.
Day 2 Clarksville, TN
Established in 1785, Clarksville is named for General George Rogers Clark, a frontier fighter, Revolutionary War hero, and brother of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Learn from local experts and museum exhibits how Clarksville rose as a major tobacco port during the 1800s. While visiting, you may want to tour the Don F. Pratt Memorial Museum which houses military memorabilia or explore Dunbar Cave, one of the largest caves in the county.
Day 3 Dover, TN
In 1862, General Simon Buckner surrendered his Rebel forces to General Ulysses S. Grant at Fort Donelson, marking the first major Union victory. Tour this battlefield and learn about the surrender that took place in Dover, and the ramifications it had on the War Between the States.
Day 4 Cruising Lake Barkley
Located in Western Kentucky, explore Lake Barkley with a relaxing day of cruising. Take in the view of the beautiful shoreline from one of the Queen of the Mississippi's spacious, comfortable lounges while enjoying the company of other guests.
Day 5 Paducah, KY
Found by William Clark (Lewis and Clark), Paducah is known as a National Heritage Destination with many talented culinary artists, painters, potters and jewelers creating and displaying their works there. Also known as “Quilt City,” there is plenty to do in Paducah from shopping, to visiting one the many fine museums, to participating in a hands-on creative workshop at a local art gallery.
Day 6 Cape Girardeau, MO
Just thirty miles from the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, this river town became an important trading post in the 1800s. Visited by Lewis and Clark, Cape Girardeau has a storied history that resonates throughout the town, from the Trail of Tears State Park to the many outdoor murals reflecting the area's rich history.
Day 7 Chester, IL
Chester is a beautiful region of Illinois located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River. This city has a diverse and storied history, beginning with the establishment of a ferry system by Jane Thomas in the early 1800s. Chester is home to Popeye's creator Elzie C. Segar and you may see the Sailor Man's likeness in the town's own six-foot-tall bronze metal statue.
Day 8 St. Louis, MO
This “Gateway to the West” was the epicenter for exploration following the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Now, it is the largest city visited during the cruise and has a distinct metropolitan culture. Take the elevator to the top of the Gateway Arch, which stands 630 feet over the Mississippi River.
