Enjoy a three day getaway from Marietta to Pittsburgh aboard the Valley Gem. Beginning September 2 at 9am, passengers will board a charter bus to Pittsburgh. A box lunch will be provided on the way. Upon arrival, we will take a city tour with a step on guide. In the afternoon, we will have the opportunity to enjoy the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. We will plan to check in to our hotel around 4pm. The rest of the evening is yours to enjoy. Our hotel is near Rivers Casino and several shopping areas and if you are a baseball fan, the Pirates are playing at home against the Brewers at 7:05pm. The hotel is adjacent to PNC Park.
After an enjoyable day in Pittsburgh, you will board the boat and spend September 3rd and 4th cruising down the Ohio River. We will go through several locks along the way. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served on the boat. You will get to enjoy a full, hot breakfast, a lighter lunch and big delicious dinner. Throughout the day, our Captains will tell stories and point out things we are seeing or traveling through. At the end of our second day, we will be staying in Washington, PA. Our hotel is across from the Meadows Racetrack and Casino for those wishing to gamble and very near the Tanger Outlet Mall. Shuttle service is provided for either destination.
Our third and final day takes us from Wheeling to Marietta. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are again served on the boat. We anticipate arriving around 8pm Sunday evening.
