The riverboat is a fun experience for people of all ages. It's a little pricey for a 45 minute boat ride, but since it's all non-profit, it's worth it. You can stand up on the top and watch the paddles go, sit inside the air...More

Although the weather was iffy, we were given the all-clear and took the tour. There was only one other guest so we pretty much had the whole boat to ourselves. The riverboat was in beautiful condition both inside and out. It's only a 45-minute tour...More
