As we progress into the summer a bit further, we realize that it’s starting to wind down a bit. Back to school shopping is in full swing, students are thinking about buying books and cool swag to deck out their rooms.
But hold up. We’re getting ahead of ourselves here. There’s plenty of time left for summer fun.
Who doesn’t enjoy hanging out on a boat? Just letting the gentle rocking of the boat lull us into a blissful state of relaxation. Sounds good, right?
How about using one of the remaining days of summer to take a cruise on one of the Padelford Riverboats? Stationed on St. Paul’s Harriet Island on the Mississippi River, the Padelford Riverboats offer a variety of both public and private cruises, as well as featured cruises. Right now featured cruises include Summer Dinner Cruises, and Happy Hour Cruises throughout the week.
