Treasure Island Casino & Riverboat Cruise
One of our favorite trips of the year is this fall trip to Treasure Island Casino with an included riverboat ride on the Spirit of the Water!  We have had great luck with the weather, and we’re hoping for another beautiful day to enjoy our cruise along the Mississippi River before enjoying a bit of gaming at the casino.  The luncheon served on the riverboat features a mid-western BBQ buffet with chicken and beef, salad, potato salad, corn, roasted potatoes cookies and coffee or tea.  Alcoholic beverages may be purchased on your own.  This popular trip will also have a departure/pick-up location at the Treaty Site Museum.  Please park toward the rear of the parking lot in order to leave parking availability for museum patrons near the building.  Call us today to sign up for the daytrip to Treasure Island Casino!
