Wagon Tour of Old Nauvoo

Take a ride in a horse-drawn conestoga wagon to see the main sights of Old Nauvoo. You'll need a ticket for each passenger, but you can get them for free at the Visitors' Center. During the busy summer months, plan ahead. The tour passes by nearly all of the sites in Historic Nauvoo so visitors can decide which sites they would like to visit. Knowledgable guides share stories about Nauvoo during this popular one-hour ride.
