Happenings Only in Detroit: The Detroit Princess Riverboat Staycation

If you've lived in Detroit long enough, you remember fondly summer excursions to Bob-Lo Island Amusement Park on the Bob-Lo Boat with Captain Bob-Lo! (Obviously, I remember!)

In the years since Bob-Lo Island Amusement Park closed, several unsuccessful attempts have been made to bring back the "Bob-Lo Magic". For those of us who remember, it is a toss-up of which was more fun, the rides at the Park, or the voyage down the River by way of Amherstburg Ontario on the boat! (Remember, Bob-Lo is actually a part of Canada...always has been...)

Well, Bob-Lo Island is now a marina resort community (still only accessible by boat or plane), but we in Detroit can still experience that cruise up and down the Detroit River under the Ambassador Bridge by booking a lunch or dinner aboard the new Detroit Princess Riverboat.

The Detroit Princess is a true riverboat, with five levels (the top two levels almost totally outside), and perfect for summer fun. Both lunch and dinner public cruises are available every day of the week in warm weather; charters are available for private parties and special events.

If you are looking for a great way to enjoy your summer in Detroit with family and friends, cruising the Detroit River, seeing the beautiful sights of the skylines of both Windsor and Detroit, book a 2 1/2 hour on the Detroit Princess. Unlike Gilligan and the SS Minnow, you'll be back on land in less than 3 hours!
