A very pleasant - and not too expensive - way to spend an hour or so. Witty and knowledgeable commentary on the river and the boat from the captain; excellent local Civil War information from the "crew". Really enjoyed this trip.
My son and I spent a relaxing afternoon enjoying a scenic drive to shaker village. Also an equally enjoyable ride aboard the Dixie Belle.
We had some problems finding the Belle. However once we visited the shaker Village information center it was made clear what...More

It costs $10 adults and $5 kids and you have to buy tickets first at the Shakertown entrance before going to the boat. The boat is down a steep road across from the entrance to Shakertown, a little north on 68. From Shakertown, turn left on 68 and the entrance will be on your right.
