Party Mark Twain style on an overnight cruise on Illinois' only authentic paddle wheel boat.

Take An Overnight Cruise Without Leaving Illinois

There are some boat rides you can take throughout Illinois especially in Chicago on Lake Michigan. I have been on many of them in my lifetime. They are a lot of fun. If you want to take an overnight trip though, usually you have to leave the state and go on one of those huge cruise ships that are based on the ocean.

If you would take an overnight cruise without even leaving Illinois, I have found just the place you can get that done. Even better, it is like a trip back in time. You will be able to party Mark Twain style.
