“Your true pilot cares nothing about anything on earth but the river, and his pride in his occupation surpasses the pride of kings.” – Mark Twain
Docked on a wharf along the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky, lies a living museum, the Belle of Louisville. On the Belle, you too can experience the world of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
A National Historic Landmark, the Belle was built in 1914 and is the only remaining steamboat from that era. A cruise on the Belle is a one-of-a-kind chance to experience the world of river steamboats that Mark Twain so famously loved.
