Get ready for a celebrity cameo like no other! Former Illinois Congressman Abraham Lincoln joins us on July 1st for two very special I&M Canal Boat Tours (1pm and 2:30pm). Hop aboard our mule-pulled 1840s replica packet boat and watch history come to life as Mr. Lincoln recounts the role he played in the creation of the I&M Canal, which ushered in a new era of trade and travel for the entire nation.

As always, your journey includes: a “Mule Tending 101” class in which you’ll meet Moe the Mule, interact with crew of period dressed guides, hear tales of the canal’s heyday and enjoy a 60-90 minute boat ride.

One day only! Don’t miss this exclusive 1-hour experience of history and adventure.
