We wanted to touch a little piece of movie history, so we headed down to Key Largo to get a ride on the African Queen.The African Queen is a 30-foot, steel-hulled steamship built in 1912 as the S/L Livingston to navigate the upper Nile River. John Huston leased it in 1951 to make The African Queen, the movie, and the boat was later renamed for the film that made it a star. Later, the boat was brought to the United States and used for charters, abandoned, rediscovered, given a makeover, used for rides, then put on display when the engine died.
