The only way to see the City of Pittsburgh and truly learn about her past, present and future is aboard the Gateway Clipper for the Pittsburgh Sightseeing Cruise. The Pittsburgh riverboat tour will begin on the Monongahela River and will continue on both the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers all while the Captain and Narrator relay interesting facts, tales and river lore that make Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania so special!
Boarding begins at 8:00 pm (within walking distance from the hotel) for an 8:30 tour. The boat will return at 9:30 pm so you can rest up for the convention that starts the next day!
Both tours are on the Convention registration form so be sure to include them!
