Itinerary

Day 1: Hotel Stay - Chattanooga, TN
Enjoy a one-night luxury hotel stay in Chattanooga before boarding the American Queen Steamboat the following day.

Day 2: Embark - Chattanooga, TN
Embark the American Queen Steamboat and kick off the start of the journey with a festive Welcome Aboard Dinner.

Day 3: River Cruising
Enjoy onboard activities, mingle with new friends, or taste the refined dining aboard the American Queen while taking in the panoramic views of America's great landscape.

Day 4: Florence, AL
Uncover the historic landmarks of Florence, starting from the town's oldest structure, Pope's Tavern Museum, which has been used as a stagecoach stop, tavern, and inn, and hospital for both Confederate and Union forces during Civil War. From there, explore the Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts, Frank Lloyd Wright Rosenbaum House, the highest platform mount in the Tennessee Valley region, the Florence Indian Mound & Museum, and the modest cabin of the "Father of the Blues," William Christopher Handy, that exhibits a large collection of his personal papers, memorabilia, and artifacts.

Day 5: Savannah, TN
Trace the story of Corinth in the Civil War from secession through reconstruction at the Shiloh National Military Park, which displays interactive interpretive exhibits, stunning bronze work, and two state-of-the-art films on Shiloh and Corinth. Be sure to make a stop at the Shiloh Indian Mounds, a National Historic Landmark, and the national cemetery within the park, the last resting place to 4,000 soldiers and their family members.

Day 6: Clifton, TN
Situated on a horseshoe bend on the Tennessee River, Clifton is rich in Civil War history as an important port and ferry crossing.

Day 7: Dover, TN
Explore the vibrant history of Dover with visits though Fort Donelson National Battlefield and National Cemetery and learn of the city's importance during the Civil War, controlling access to the Cumberland River supply route. The capture of Fort Donelson by Brigadier General Ulysses S. Grant was a major victory for the Union Army, and Grant’s first step toward gaining the fame that would eventually lead him to command the entire Union Army. The Dover Hotel still stands just as it did when General Buckner surrendered his Confederate forces to Grant there on February 16, 1862.

Day 8: Clarksville, TN
Named after hero of the Revolutionary War General George Rogers Clark, Clarksville is a great homage to veterans and historic sights, including headquarters of the 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell. The 101st has been praised most for their role in major military campaigns during World War II, which were documented in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. The Customs House Museum and Cultural Center highlights local history as well as science and art.

Day 9: Disembark - Nashville, TN
After breakfast, enjoy the offerings of the Music City before heading home.
