It’s nearing the month of May and summer vacation is just around the corner! In our past blogs we’ve covered what Cumberland County, Pennsylvania has to offer our guests such as delicious foods, world-class breweries, gorgeous hiking trails, unique artistry, and more! In this blog we at Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast would like to share a great way to spend the warm summer months: Sailing aboard the lovely riverboat Pride of the Susquehanna!
The Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat was constructed about 30 years ago in Harrisburg, PA and has been a popular tourist attraction ever since. It is only one of six “authentic” paddle wheel riverboats in the United States, utilizing only paddle wheels for both propulsion and steering. Both the inside and outside of the boat were created to be reminiscent of classic 1800s riverboats, making this a great destination for history lovers and buffs alike!
Here is an overview of only a few of many upcoming events aboard the Pride, and check out their main events page for even more events and information!
