St. Louis is known as the Gateway to the west, and Eccentry Holidays wants travelers to experience the magnificence of the city and the Mississippi River. Founded in 1764 and acquired with the Louisiana Purchase, St. Louis is home to the first bridge over the Mississippi and grew over the last few centuries primarily due to industrialization. These fantastic cruise options allow vacationers to experience both in a variety of ways. All of these cruises embark from the riverboat dock located on the riverfront below the Gateway Arch.
1. Sunday Brunch – Nothing says Sunday morning like brunch, and Eccentry Holidays encourages travelers to enjoy some rest and relaxation on the deck of a charming riverboat.

Along with the entertainment of a Dixieland band, a scrumptious brunch is served. Some of the delicious options include cheese blintzes, prime rib, pasta, eggs, and French toast. This cruise is 2 hours long with boarding at 12:30pm.
2. Sightseeing – From March to November, travelers are encouraged to sit back and take in the sights of St. Louis from the Mississippi River. A one-hour sightseeing cruise is available onboard either the Tom Sawyer or Becky Thatcher riverboats.

A National Park Ranger frequently accompanies the Captain on this cruise and discusses how the river affects and benefits the city.
