The Spirit of Peoria Paddlewheel Boat will be taking guests on scenic cruises all summer, with a number of trips scheduled between Alton and Grafton.  The Alton Regional Convention and Visitor’ Bureau is already taking reservations for the cruises that start June 30.  Organizers expect the cruises to continue to be very popular.

Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau President Brett Stawar tells The Big Z the opportunity to see the sights from the river gives you a unique perspective.

He says it is one of the only authentic paddle wheelers still cruising the Mississippi.  The Spirit of Peoria routinely travels up and down the Illinois River and Mississippi River.  For more information on the cruises, call 465-6676, or follow the link:
