The Shaker Village has partnered with a company for two daily trips along the Kentucky River. Departing from a dock below the Village, the Dixie Belle is a comfortable boat to explore the waters of a river that crosses most of the state. From tall ledges to green mesas to overhanging trees, the scenery provides a backdrop to a relaxing... More

We visited the Dixie Belle on a sunny cool afternoon. The staff were very friendly. We went on an hour long ride and had a most enjoyable time. The narrator/captain was knowledgeable and explained what we were coming up on so we could get our cameras ready. The scenery was beautiful and everybody seemed to be having a good time.... More

The Dixie Belle is a cool diesel powered riverboat that takes hour long rides past the high bridge at Shaker's Landing. The narration is very interesting, and the scenery is one of a kind. They have a restroom but it's very small and once you step in you can hear the loud humming of the engine, so use the restroom... More

I visited the Dixie Belle with my mom on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We happened to be driving by and noticed the sign "Riverboat" on the side of the road. We turned down the drive to find a sign indicating rides at 2:00 and 4:00. A quick google search led me to the Shaker Village website, where I learned that... More

Great boat ride. Narrator gives a lot of information. We traveled under one of the highest train bridges in the country and a train crossed. The grandson loved that.

A ride on the Dixie Belle is a very relaxing way to spend an afternoon. I went on July 4th. It was anot really crowded and the scenery was wonderful. There were a lot of birds as well as other things to photograph. The whole trip made my photographers heart happy!

The Dixie Belle Riverboat Ride is a part of the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill. It is a one hour cruise along the Kentucky River pallisades, which are beautiful. I enjoyed the portion of the cruise that passes under the High Bridge railroad bridge. The guide provided an interesting narration about this bridge. The ride is accessable, although access to...
