by | Oct 3, 2007

River Cities Inc. of St. Paul, MN is developing a twist on condo living. As odd as it may sound, they’re bringing adventure travel into the mix by constructing a floating community that will navigate America’s inland waterways.


Their so-called “River City” will be on the move all year, cruising the northern rivers in the summer and the southern rivers and Intracoastal Waterways in the winter. The rivers include the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Tennessee, Illinois, Cumberland, Arkansas and Atchafalaya. Plus the Tombigbee and Intracoastal Waterways.

Amenities include a grocery store, restaurants, concierge service, a rooftop lounge, theaters, activity rooms, a library, hot tubs and pools, fitness equipment, walking tracks, a rooftop chipping course and even fishing.

A 924 s.f. condo is going for $499,000. Fractional onwnership is also available.
