I'll be with a 6 & 9 y/o. Never been there before. Do I need to book way ahead? Anything I should/shouldn't do or know or avoid?

Thanks

I went on a riverboat cruise about 2 years ago in August. It was in the early afternoon (not a dinner cruise). I was able to purchase tickets about an hour in advance. I got the feeling that at least half the passengers did this as a last minute thing, but it's hard to predict in your situation, especially if it's a cruise later in the night. If you can book in advance, even if it's just a few days ahead of time, that might be to your benefit. Have you checked the tourism website to see if they recommend reservations?

I don't have any other advice. We enjoyed the cruise even though we're life long residents. They did take souvenir photos upon boarding, so you might want to bring extra cash or a credit card for that.

The downtown skyline is beautiful when it's lit up at night. Enjoy!

Personally- I would go during the day so you can actually see the sights and skip the dinner. The food on the boat is quite igh and we have so many other amazing places downtown to go, particularly with kids!

Can you recommend a place I should take the kids for dinner?
