Our popular tour begins with a delicious hot lunch at Starved Rock Lodge. Next, you’ll board a trolley for a ride through historic downtown Utica and stop at Cattails (where you can shop for unique treasures, wine, gifts and more). Your trolley will then take you on a relaxing ride to LaSalle, where you will board the canal boat. Step back in time, with period-dressed interpreters, on this 1-hour, mule-pulled canal boat ride. Learn the rich history of Illinois waterways, especially the Illinois & Michigan Canal.
