Southern Hospitality at its Best

We decided to take a day trip to Decatur, AL and while there was told about a paddle wheel riverboat operating on the Tennessee River. We drove down and was actually greeted in the parking lot by Capt. Mike! Great first impression! We purchased our tickets and boarded the lovely boat that was so clean we were amazed at how clean it was. The restrooms were spotless. The Captain did a naration during the cruise that was very interesting and allowed us to visit him in the pilot house. They had concessions as well as a bar for our enjoyment during the cruise...nice! The crew allowed us to take pictures with them and invited us back. Way to go Decatur! Great way to experience your river!
