“Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ‘em all together, I guess.”   -Elvis in 1956, talking about his way of moving on stage

Your toes will be tappin’ down the Great River Road to the music and memories of Elvis. Beginning in his hometown of Memphis, cruising south to New Orleans, renowned tribute artists will have the American Queen swaying to the music of the King!

Day 1: Overnight Deluxe Hotel in Memphis, TN

Day 2: Embark in Memphis, TN

Board the American Queen this afternoon before our steamboat departs Memphis at 5pm.

Day 3: Greenville, MS

Deep in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, on the banks of Lake Fergusson, just a short drive from the home of the blues, Greenville’s waters grow writers. The creative energy of Greenville has produced writers, singers, gardeners, and more. Learn about Greenville’s contributions at the Greenville History Museum, as well as other cultural centers and historical stops in Greenville.

Day 4: Vicksburg, MS

Civil War history is alive in Vicksburg, Lincoln’s ‘Key to the South.’ This vital river port city has since become a rich historical visit for tourists who want to learn about the battles of Vicksburg, as well as visit their museums.

Day 5: Natchez, MS

Natchez Indians and the first French explorers shared this beautiful piece of the river for many years. Officially founded in 1716, Natchez is the oldest city on the Mississippi River. Wherever you go, you’ll experience another piece of history, including unique shops, restaurants, museums and the historic homes of Natchez.

Day 6: St. Francisville, LA

The original settlement of Bayou Sara was destroyed by flooding and fires. Many of the structures were hauled up the bluff to St. Francisville, where they still stand. The southern charm is evident as soon as you walk past the Spanish moss-covered trees between touring their historic homes, beautiful churches and taking pictures with your friends in their breathtaking parks.

Day 7: Baton Rouge, LA

The Capital of Louisiana offers a unique look at the history and flavor of the state. If you’re looking forward to practicing your French skills, beware: the locals speak a specific version of French only found here.

Day 8: Nottoway, LA

Explore the largest remaining antebellum deep south mansion in this included tour of Nottoway Plantation. This mansion is three floors, 64-bedrooms, and has 22 white square columns, contributing to its nickname, ‘The White Castle of Louisiana”.

Day 9: Disembark in New Orleans, LA
