Pittsburgh Riverboat Tour

My family moved to the Pittsburgh area a little over a year ago. Because I attend college on the other side of the state, I only get to “The Burgh” during school breaks. I took a few days off from work this summer to visit the fam, so we decided to spend the day doing something new and exciting in the city.

Station Square is located along the shoreline of the Monongahela River and is easily one of the hottest places in Pittsburgh for dining, entertainment, and nightlife. One of Station Square’s attractions is the Gateway Clipper Fleet, which offers a one-hour sightseeing riverboat tour of the city. On a sunny summer day, my family and I boarded “The Duchess” and launched onto the Monongahela, excited to experience Pittsburgh in a brand new way with our tour-guide, Sean (who totally thought he was a pirate).

The riverboat tour was the perfect way for my family to get to know our new city better (Did you know Pittsburgh is the City of Bridges? At 446, its bridge count is the greatest in the world! Take that, Venice!). Spending time in Station Square and enjoying an hour on the water made for a wonderful afternoon. If you live around Pittsburgh or are ever in the area, a visit to Station Square and a Gateway Clipper Fleet riverboat tour with family, your special someone, or a group of friends, is a must do!
