If you’re looking for a unique way to experience the city of St. Louis, be sure to book a Sunday brunch riverboat cruise. Step aboard the decks of the Becky Thatcher or the Tom Sawyer, two replica 19th century paddle-wheel riverboats, and the only two operating in St. Louis today. Enjoy a ride on the mighty Mississippi River, past the inspiring and iconic Gateway Arch, historic landmarks and the city’s scenic shoreline.
During the cruise, sit back for a fully catered Sunday brunch featuring a menu of delights, including French toast, prime rib, egg dishes, salads, fresh fruit, hot coffee, and a tempting array of sweets. Your experience is complete with live music from a Dixieland band keeping time to the movements of the boat and river. Listen to ranger-narrated stories to learn more about the unique history of St. Louis or simply sit back and enjoy the view.
After the cruise, explore the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial grounds to visit the Old Courthouse, see the Monument to the Dream movie, and ride to the top of the famous Gateway Arch.
