Saturday Evening - Riverboat Cruise
Enjoy a magical evening on the Mississippi River. Sit back and relax while the La Crosse Queen paddles down the main channel. The musicians will provide an atmosphere of fine dining while you enjoy a tasty, chef-carved Roast Beef and Ham Dinner. Later, they will serenade you while you relax on the upper deck and watch the world go by. The La Crosse Queen is a modern-day replica of the grand river boats that plied the MIssissippi River in the late 19th Century.  She is one of the few authentic Mississippi River paddlewheel river boats still in operation in the United States today. 

The Saturday evening dinner cruises are chartered for 7-Lag attendees only. For more about the La Crosse Queen, visit the cruise website
