Harrisburg Riverboat party! - An Eventective User from Hummelstown, PA

This is a great sightseeing visit to take guests of the Harrisburg area when you don't know what to do with them. Most people like the river view and this is the best way to see it. The Pride of the Susquehanna is a older style riverboat in vain of the gambling boats you always see on the Mississippi. It has the flipping circular wheel to steer the boat and 2 levels to enjoy the ride. The boat travels up and down the susquehanna to the Harrisburg border but not all the way down to TMI or anything, for about a 30 minute ride. It is usually a smooth ride where you can sit back and relax, let the wind blow in your hair and look at Harrisburg from the outside, asking yourself why it looks so much cooler as a skyline then when actually downtown. Tuesday through Sundays the boat leaves from City Island at 1:30pm and 3pm. The fare is $7 for an adult, $6 for a senior and $4 for children-- a great price to see Harrisburg from a different view. They also have private dinner cruises including mystery murder dinner cruise, italian buffet cruise, classic style dinner cruise, etc. Check the website for more info.
