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 American Queen will make more stops in Alton this year too.  Several other boats are continuing to be very popular, as the opportunity to see the sights from the river gives you a unique perspective, according to the head of the Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

Brett Stawar tells The Big Z there are a variety of options when cruising the river, depending upon your tastes.
