Take a Cruise on the Belle of Louisville for Memorial Day May 25
It’s been 101 years since the beautiful Belle of Louisville was first launched on the Ohio River. It’s one of the proudest landmarks for Louisville, and the only American riverboat to survive 100 years of age. This is the kind of grand boat that Mark Twain wrote about when he was sailing on American rivers. Take a cruise this May 25, and maybe you’ll have a story to tell of your own.
Cruising the Ohio
Enjoy a late buffet lunch while the historic Belle cruises along the Ohio from 1 to 3 pm. With advance reservations, you can book indoor seating. Otherwise, sit outside to enjoy a sightseeing ride. Admission costs $36, and you need to be on time. If you’re late, you will literally miss the boat.
Riding on the Belle of Louisville is one of those traditions that you can only enjoy here. The Belle is a uniquely Louisville landmark, and taking a riverboat cruise definitely isn’t something that you can enjoy just anywhere. The May weather feels a little cooler and breezier down by the water, and you’ll have an amazing view of the distinct city skyline that makes Louisville stand out among other cities.
Meet the Belle of Louisville at 401 W. River Road, where she docks, and hop onboard for your river adventure.
