Did you know that Harrisburg has its very own fully operational historic riverboat? The “Pride of the Susquehanna” riverboat is a fully authentic paddlewheel riverboat that operates regularly up and down the flowing waters of the Susquehanna just off the banks of Harrisburg, PA! Some fun facts about this wonderful holdover from our past, provided by the Harrisburg Riverboat Society, are as follows:
- The Pride is one of only six remaining “authentic” paddlewheel riverboats in the United States
- There are no propellers, rudders, or other forms of propulsion or steering. This is truly a gem in our modern world!
- The Pride is handicapped accessible for ALL cruises, except for the upper deck
- Due to winter ice, the Pride must be pulled from the river in November and then relaunched each year in April
- All cruises depart from the City Island Docks, down from the baseball stadium on the Susquehanna River facing the Harrisburg Skyline
- The Pride is fully equipped with restrooms and is handicapped accessible!
