Plan for a night out with a romantic dinner cruise on a sternwheeler. The Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park in Parkersburg, 77 miles from Charleston, WV, is organizing dinner cruises on August 2 and September 6, 2013.
The dinner cruise is onboard the sternwheeler Island Belle, and will depart from Point Park at 6 o’clock in the evening. The cruise takes about an hour and a half, and is followed by a musical concert.
There is also evening picnics at Blennerhassett Island on July 27 and August 24. To go there, the sternwheeler will pick up passengers at 6:30pm, returning back to the mainland at 9:30pm. Picnic meals are included, as well as a wagon ride tour, and a guided tour of the Blennerhassett Mansion.
There is limited seating, so reservations are required. Cuise tickets costs $25 for adults and $20 for children ages 3-12. Ticket booking and inquiries can be done by calling the park office at (304) 420-4800 or visiting their website at www.blennerhassettislandstatepark.com.
