Fun ‘N the Sun houseboat rental featured in Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Tribune featured Alma, Wisconsin’s Fun ‘N the Sun houseboat rental in their travel section. Writer Josh Noel rented a houseboat for three nights to cruise the Mississippi River. This was Noel’s first experience with renting a houseboat and he describes his three day journey with details about encountering barges and lock and dams, operating a CB radio and the “simple joy of houseboating on the Mississippi.”

“Up the Mississippi we went. I gave my father a couple turns at the wheel, and comfortable now, we listened to music, some easy, breezy stuff fit for the river. We cut through the bluffs, craggy and green and rolling.” 

“…we turned our attention to a thick rain drumming the river just outside our back door. Half an hour later it was gone, replaced by a rainbow to the south, an orange sherbet sky to the north and miles of placid Mississippi in between.”
