Aledo Times Record

Senior citizens, come join the fun in guided riverfront golf cart tours on both sides of the Mississippi! This is a fun way to gain knowledge on the past, present, and future of the Quad Cities and the Mississippi. Tours fill up fast and carts are limited! Over 700 people participated last year and we hope to see even more this year. In honor of our 15th Anniversary, we have created a new tour, Tour Alpha. Tour Alpha will focus on Credit Island and Nahant Marsh, running twice at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., while Tour #1 will only run this year at 2 p.m. Plus, celebrate the bicentennial of the Battle of Credit Island (Sept. 4th, 1814). We hope to see you on September 4th!

Choose any of the six different tours at three different starting times: 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 2 p.m. All tours are two hours long and cost $12.50 per person, per tour.
