Riverboats

SteamPunk has helped me develop a love for the fast disappearing riverboats.  These steam powered paddle wheelers represented an era of eloquence that should not be forgotten.  This is a forum to share and discuss these floating palaces.

Riverboat Motel

Motel Shaped Like a Riverboat

Field review by the editors.

Branson, Missouri

We can't vouch for the caliber of the Riverboat Inn as a place to sleep, but we definitely recommend its exterior as a quasi-lifelike landlocked loggy replica of a Mississippi riverboat.

Unfortunately, a EF-2 tornado tore up the main drag in Branson in February 2012, and one casualty was the Riverboat Inn. In July, it was still a mess, with plastic tarps stretched over the damaged facades. No word on whether it will return with all its boat-on-land finery...
