fun tour, interesting movie, included easy to get to and find, \the history of this area is very eye opening. There was no charge and we spent a good 2 hours there. Right in town.

A short walk from town, this stern wheeler was interesting and historic. Filled with lots to see, it was well worth the visit. It sits in a park along the river and is a nice adventure away from the typical touristy places.

I really enjoy exploring the ship. There are two levels of it and it has all the setup like it was when it was being used.
