Traveled with my husband. Totally loved this riverboat. Snacks and beverages are available on board or you can pack a light lunch. There is space to sit inside and outside. Bring along a light jacket since it can be cooler on the water.

The Pride had closed down weekday operations, but did a special voyage for a group of WWII VETS and their families. The trip was wonderful. The captain was very accommodating to our group and it was a wonderful day on the river!
