Queen of the Mississippi stops by La Crosse’s Riverside Park

Another sign of summer is docked along La Crosse’s Riverside Park.

The Queen of the Mississippi stopped in the city as a part of a Mississippi River cruise. It’s one of a trio of river boats that makes stops along the Mississippi River each summer. The others are the American Queen and America.

“As you’re cruising throught the Mississppi, on one side you’ve got a whole bunch of trees, and on the other you’ve got golf courses, and then you’ve got islands. It’s facinating being from California. It’s totally different,” said passenger Jody Mize.

While tours of the boats may not be available, you can appreciate the boats from a distance now through mid-October.
