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.

Let's face it, Harrisburg is not a major US city but it is the capitol of PA. You could walk across the Susquahanna River in certain spots but you would miss the big picture. Harrisburg is a part of history and it will be described to you onboard this trip.

If you have an hour to kill in the summer then taking a trip on the Pride would be a good way to spend the time. It's relaxing a and fun little trip down and back up the river.

The Pride is a nice Harrisburg attraction for the summer and early Fall. It's a nice ride that provides a great view of the City. When waters are lower in the summer their route can be restricted a bit. You board from City Island and it's easy to find. Their staff are very friendly, and their captains are skilled. We... More

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!
