New Orleans, Louisiana: Natchez

It wouldn't be the Mississippi River if there wasn't a steamboat on it. Mark Twain would be proud to see that the Natchez is still steaming around the mighty river.

The boat offers a variety of cruises during the course of a week and of a year. There are two-hour journeys at day time exploring the river, night cruises and Sunday brunch cruises. There's even some jazz played on every ride. It's available for private parties and weddings.

This is the ninth boat to carry this name and has been around in about 40 years. This is only one of two steam-powered sternwheelers on the Mississippi. 

Entry point is near Jackson Square. If you take the brunch cruise, it will set you back $40.50, although you can skip the meal and save about $10 if you just want to watch the world go by on the boat.
