Riverboat Cruises, Downtown St. Louis

Location: 50 S. Lenore K. Sullivan Boulevard, St. Louis, MO 63102

There are 2 riverboats cruising down the Mississippi at the Riverfront. The Tom Sawyer and the Becky Thatcher. You have 2 choices of cruises to choose from- the one hour sightseeing cruise (adults $20, kids $10), or the 2 hour dinner cruise (adults $48, kids $20).

There are 2 levels and they serve food on both levels. The restrooms are only on the first floor. They are old and small. There is a 3rd level that is completely outside and the breeze and views are fantastic. There are lots of chairs so you can sit and watch the world go by. 

This is the dock where you wait until it's time to board. They have restrooms here, a gift shop, food, lots of places to sit and relax, and photo ops. You can walk up and buy tickets here or buy them online in advance. They also sell tickets here for the arch, which is about a 10 minute walk away.

 The Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher docked next to each other. 

They had jazzy music piped in, it was air conditioned, and the servers were very helpful. I highly recommend this for a fun family activity!
