The Cat is a really great trip on the Mississippi River. You can get off and on at your pleasure in 3 or 4 different stops. Each stop, in different towns, have interesting and exciting activities. And very reasonable.

Took the water taxi instead of driving, and thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Cheap fun way to go to several locations. Cool views from on the river as opposed to crossing it on the bridge. Nice breeze, would recommend this company to anyone visiting.
