Friendly employees. Enjoyed taking family from out of town on the river. Can get busy in the summer months so you'll want to be in line early to get on it. Definitely good for a tourist visit or take your kids on it.

Has multi landing spots on both sides of the River. If you like to ride in boats in comfort, this is the way to do it. Locals use it, with motor vehicles parked nearby, bikes and buses or cabs to travel between both sides of...More
