Why We Like This Place

Enjoy a romantic event on the Potomac River with a first-class view of Washington’s memorials and monuments. The Cherry Blossom, a re-creation of a 19th-century Victorian riverboat, is designed for gracious private entertaining. Outfitted with ornate iron railings and brass and mahogany detailing, this elegant sternwheeler is perfect for celebrating your rehearsal dinner, ceremony, wedding reception or all three. The Potomac Riverboat Company’s fleet includes a variety of vessels available for special events and has docking locations in Alexandria, Virginia, National Harbor, Maryland and Georgetown in Washington, D.C. Boat showings are available by appointment. Call for more information.
