Riverboats returning to Savannah, starting June 2
UPDATE, May 24, 3:20 p.m. — American Duchess is reported to be having issues in Paducah, Kentucky, and will not be docking in Savannah on Wednesday. The next scheduled riverboat visit is on June 2.
ORIGINAL STORY — Hardin County Convention and Visitors Bureau, along with the City of Savannah, welcome the American Queen Voyages line for six stops this season.
“River guests love our area for the American history and the river lore that we embrace, not just the Civil War era, but the Trail of Tears, the Alex Haley family, the mound builders, and definitely the romance of the steamboats,” said county Tourism Director Beth Pippin.
Hardin County Convention and Visitors Bureau operates Step-On Step-Off tours for the American Queen, American Duchess, and American Countess.
“You’ll see lots of folks out and about in our downtown district on these days. Guests also enjoy visiting Shiloh National Park on select days,” said Pippin. “Welcome back to Savannah, river cruisers!”
