Whether you’ve arrived in our region by plane, train, or automobile, there’s another set of “rides” you might like to try. All unique, each offers an experience you can only find in the Hershey Harrisburg Region!
On a beautiful day in Harrisburg, you’re sure to spot the red and white Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat cruising down the river. This unique paddlewheel boat is one of the last remaining in the country and offers unparalleled views of the Harrisburg city skyline. Climb aboard for one of her daily sightseeing tours, offering daily from City Island. Reserve a table at one of their special evening events, like dinner cruises, sunset happy hours, or moonlight party voyages. Sail with the Susquehanna River School, where a 75-minute Saturday morning cruise turns into a floating school, specializing in the natural history of the Susquehanna River!
Explore our region by horsepower with a carriage ride across the Susquehanna River and around Harrisburg. The South Mountain Carriage Company offers horse-drawn city tours, dinner date rides, family rides up to 10 people, and special memories you’ll never forget! Like the Pride, the horse-drawn carriages leave from City Island, for an out-of-the-ordinary ride double feature!
