At the top of my ‘bucket list’ is a trip on the Mississippi on the magnificent American Queen.
This Fourth of July you can join the American Queen for a cruise to Pittsburgh, the City of Bridges. Here’s the good news:
Take part in a special voyage marking the first time the American Queen will be in the City of Bridges on the Fourth of July. Pittsburgh will be abuzz with spectacular Independence Day celebration. Disembark after experiencing the jewels of the Ohio River to enjoy the evening’s festivities on shore, or embark for your Pittsburgh departure and settle into a rocking chair aboard the American Queen with your favorite beverage. Either way you will see the night skies explode with color reflecting off the rivers, bridges and skyscrapers of Pittsburgh. This is one celebration you won’t want to miss!

-Complimentary shore excursions in every port
