RIVERBOATS


THE AMERICAN QUEEN MADE A STOP IN THE RIVER CITY TODAY…..A RETURN TRIP FROM CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE

It is so nice to come across the bridge into Decatur and see a riverboat. We have the Pickwick Belle stationed here now, not nearly as grande as the American Queen. It is used mostly for local excursions. This is a beautiful riverboat. I immediately turned down to Rhodes Ferry Park, good thing I had my camera! I rarely go anywhere without it lately.

There was a four-year hiatus for the Queen on the Decatur waterways. It has returned, so glad! It is the largest steamboat ever constructed at 418 feet. It has returned from a ten-day civil war cruise, from Vicksburg to Chattanooga, and was last through Decatur on Aug 13, 2012.
