Welcome aboard our extended weekend rail cruse from St. Louis thru Chicago and on to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. Our northward journey begins in St. Louis, MO where, just after departure, we cross the Mississippi River, a common thread in this rail adventure.

Traveling north, our trip tiptoes through Wood River, IL, the departure point for the Lewis and Clark river expedition. Alton, IL, located at the confluence of the Illinois, Mississippi and Missouri rivers and the last direct connection to the Mississippi River until La Crosse Wisconsin. The rolling hills, farms and endless prairies are broken up by our train racing through small town America.

After a brief overnight pause in the Windy City, Chicago, our train adventure takes us from the modern skyscrapers through that city that beer made famous, Milwaukee. The view out our windows show us that the lakes filled with bass, pike, sturgeon and trout, known as the “Land of Sky-blue Waters”, attracts fishermen and tourists from around the world. We will once again come back in touch with the soft tree-covered river shores of the Mississippi. With our train traveling through a 1350 foot tunnel we pop out to see sudden steep hills and rugged limestone bluffs. As the River narrows we will arrive at the Twin Cities, Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnesota. We will take in the sights, both man-made and natural, in Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota.

An off train dinner cruise and side tours with guide are included.
