The after convention trip will be a 2 hour cruise on the Mississippi River with Brunch and Dessert served during the cruise. There will be an open bar for those who wish. The cruise is on the Magnolia Blossom on the scenic Mississippi River. There will be a variety of things to see and the boat can accommodate groups up to 100 people.
The brunch will include eggs, sausage, ham, baked chicken, apple rolled pancakes, potatoes, fresh fruit, pasta salad, muffins, and Danish rolls. There also will be an assortment of desserts.
After the 2 hour cruise the bus will pick us up and go to the U/M Landscape Arboretum which is rated the best botanical garden in the USA. There are 120 acres of trees, flowers, prairie and plants. They are arranged in different gardens and there are numerous trails for those who are adventurous. For those that do not get around very well there are many gardens close to the main building. The main building usually has some type of exhibit going on and there are elevators to the second floor which has a small café for those in need of refreshments.
The total cost of the trip is $95.00 and includes the bus, 2 hr cruise, brunch, and the landscape arboretum.
The trip starts at 11 am when the bus will pick us up at the Crowne Plaza Aire and we anticipate returning around 5 pm to the hotel.
