If you’ve seen the big paddlewheelers parked at La Crosse’s riverfront, and you’ve wanted to take a vacation on one of those boats, you could win such a trip in a new sweepstakes. 

River Travel Magazine of La Crosse and a company which books Mississippi River cruises are offering a week-long river cruise as the grand prize in a ‘Big River Boat’ contest. 

The sweepstakes winner will get a 7-day and 8-night cruise on one of the USA River Cruises on the Mississippi. 

The River Travel website has a countdown clock, counting just over 400 days until the contest winner is announced on April 1st of 2021.

USA River Cruises offers trips on boats such as the American Queen and American Duchess, which make several visits to La Crosse during the summer and fall. 

No specific boat has been designated for the grand prize cruise.
