"Riverwalk" Steamboat Natchez Tip by Ewingjr98
Steamboat Natchez, New Orleans: 16 reviews and 38 photos
The Riverwalk is a peaceful spot, with just a few beggars and homeless musicians as well as a good amount of tourists checking out the dikes and realizing that the Mississippi River *is* above the level of the city streets by about 5-10 feet. Last hurricane the dikes between Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi broke, next hurricane or flood? Maybe the Mississippi?
Along the Riverwalk visitors seem to enjoy the Steamboat Natchez, which is one of just 5 true steam-powered boats with stern wheels in North America. Operated by New Orleans Steamboat Company, the Natchez was just built in 1975, and it makes 2-hour round trip cruises down the river.
This area also has a Jewish Memorial.
Address: 1 Poydras St.
