The popular sternwheel cruise boat Valley Gem is leaving (temporarily) it’s dock under the Washington Street Bridge, next to the Ohio River Museum in Marietta, Ohio, and will operate this year from a dock behind the old Armory, near the Lafayette Hotel downtown. The move was necessitated by construction that is going on all summer on the Washington Street Bridge.
Jason and Katie Sands, the Valley Gem owners, have also moved their huge barge that served as a dock and party center to the new location. You can learn more by visiting the Valley Gem website at www.valleygemsternwheeler.com
They will be operating on weekends beginning in May. See their website for dates and reservations.
