Join us on Wednesday evening for a sightseeing and dinner cruise aboard the Spirit of Jefferson, a modern riverboat with the look and feel of an old-time small steamboat. The cruise will take us upriver on the Ohio with commentary provided on the history of the river and the sights we will see. A bountiful buffet dinner is included in the ticket price; cash bar is available.
The Spirit of Jefferson was built in 1963 in Iowa, names the Mark Twain and spent the first 7 years of her life cruising the Mississippi from a base in New Orleans. She was renamed the Huck Finn in 1970 and cruised from St Louis for 25 years. In April of 1996, she came to Louisville and was given the name she now bears, the Spirit of Jefferson.
