Cruise on America's Largest River, the Mississippi, on an authentic Steamboat. The steamboat was created in the 19th century. It was special because it could transport both people and cargo for sale. The boats were powered by steam so the boat could go both down river and up river against powerful currents. Ride a Steamboat and enjoy.
Or go visit dolphins at the marine life Oceanerium. You can also splash around the trilling water roller coaster at Golf Island water park. Mississippi also offers plenty of educational activities like the Museum of Natural Science and Jack's zoological park.
