Favorite thing: The dominating image of USA in Europe is made if skiscrapers, wide roads with big cars. But there's another America, where development keeps present, but the rhythms and social life are more cal and simple. Pennsylvania looks like a huge farm, where the Amish are just a detail
The Pride of the Susquehanna is a paddlewheel riverboat that offers cruises from April to October. While you can find these in a lot of towns up and down the Susquehanna, this one offers cruises more often (and different types) than the others.
The Public Cruises are offered at least three times a day, every day, in the afternoon.
The Luncheon Cruises are offered only with advance reservation for groups.
BUT, the Dinner cruises are offered 1-3 times a week, Thursday-Saturday. You get the dinner, of course and a 2 hour trip. Additionally, there are some with themes--like murder mysteries, fireworks, musical theatre. The schedule is on their website which is Harrisburg Riverboat
I really liked the whole trip of Harrisburg. I went with my school, it was a 3hour driver there which was fun because I got to see a lot of cool things and just hang out with my fellow students.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory would be the bus ride, for three hours I sat on the bus chillin with my fellow students, we joked around talked, just had a lot of fun, On the way down we would make signals at the truckers who were driving on the rode to hunk there horms, joke around with one another and just laugh are way there.
