Our popular Canal Boat & Trolley Tour begins with a delicious hot lunch at Starved Rock Lodge. Next, you’ll board one of our trolleys 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. After the boat ride, you’ll travel to the Starved Rock State Park Visitor Center. Your final stop is back at Starved Rock Lodge. There is minimum walking involved in this tour and restrooms are available throughout. For more information or to reserve call 815-220-7386. This tour runs from May through October each year. Tickets are $39 per person.
