The Mississippi, the largest river system in North America, cuts through or borders many states, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
This behemoth was an essential source of life, nourishment and transportation for just about everyone from the Native Americans to Americans today. It stretches all the way from Northern Minnesota to the Mississippi River Delta at the Gulf of Mexico, and is actually the fourth longest river in the world! As a result of its size and reach, the Mississippi river contains a wide breadth of culture, cuisine and history for river cruisers to enjoy.
If you are looking for a taste of several cultures and an experience in American heritage, the Mississippi River is a perfect place for a river cruise.
