Dinner Cruise

spirit of jeffersonJoin us for a dinner cruise along the Ohio River on the Spirit of Jefferson steamboat on Wednesday evening, May 25, 2016.  Your cruise ticket is free with your registration to the 2016 OVGTSL Conference.  Guest tickets can be purchased for $45 on the Registration page.  Boarding time is at 5:30, with cruising time from 6-8 pm.  The dinner menu will include:

Fried chicken, baked turkey, macaroni & cheese, vegetable medley, baked beans, potato salad, pasta salad, cole slaw, deviled eggs, pie, iced tea, and coffee.


Walking — As you leave the front door of the Galt House, turn toward the river and look for a white cast iron fence at the curved end of the hotel’s horseshoe driveway. At the beginning of that fence is a pathway that comes directly to our boats. Stairs are involved, but it’s an easy 5-minute walk from the Galt House to the wharf.

Driving — From the Galt House Hotel, as you leave the parking garage, pull straight across and turn left as soon as you cross through the barrier in the middle of the street. That left turn will take you downhill toward the river, and you will be on 4th Street. At the bottom of the hill, there is a stoplight at 4th Street and River Road. To get to the closest parking lot to the boats, at the stoplight at the bottom of 4th Street, turn right onto River Road. Go three (3) blocks, then turn left and go under the expressway. That leads you into the Blue Parking Lot (Wharf Parking), and right in front of you will be Joe’s Crab Shack restaurant. Once inside the parking lot, after you’ve paid the $3.00 parking fee, turn left and follow the parking lot back down toward the boats. Be sure and tell the parking lot attendant that you’re attending an event on the Belle of Louisville so you will only be charged $3.00.  Note: If you park in the Blue/Wharf parking lot, you could be as far away from the boats as if you walked from the Galt House to the boats.

We are looking forward to seeing you there for a relaxing cruise on the river!
