How does a relaxing trip down the Hudson River on a historic boat sound? A River Rose Sight Seeing Cruise is the perfect way to spend a day on the majestic Hudson River.
The River Rose, based in Newburgh, NY, is an authentic 100-foot New Orleans Paddle Wheeler that was brought over from the Mississippi River.

It lasts for 2 hours and you will be pass some amazing spots along the river including the Catskill Water Aqueduct, Bannerman’s Island, World’s End, the Village of Cold Spring, and the military academy at West Point.
