Ohio River Cruise on the American Queen

We were thrilled to have been included in this trip along the Ohio River!  We enjoyed having you!

"We checked out the riverfront with a Just Ducky amphibious tour, then had lunch at the Habitat Restaurant in the Fairmont Hotel. As part of the Green City movement, the restaurant grows their own herbs, buys foods from local farms, and mostly organic. We stayed at the Priory Hotel, a unique 24-room hotel built in 1888 as a monastery for Benedictine Priests and Brothers. Next door is the Grand Hall, built in 1852 as a church for German and Swiss settlers in the area. Scheduled for demolition to make way for a highway, a community group forced relocation of the highway and saved them."-Shirley Linde
