Delaware River Tours
Read MoreShow Less
In American history, the Delaware River is best known for the brave crossing made by George Washington around Trenton, NJ, when he directed a surprise attack during the Revolutionary War. However, today the Delaware River is home to a vibrant modern waterfront as it winds past Philadelphia, where locals and visitors alike can find great food, music, shopping and summer festivals. Among the many attractions along the riverfront, you can explore Olympia, the country’s oldest floating steel warship, at the Independence Seaport Museum, head to Morgan’s Pier to enjoy craft beer and live music overlooking the river, and climb aboard the RiverLink Ferry to explore the city from the water.
The Delaware River is the eastern border of both the state of Pennsylvania and the city of Philadelphia, with Camden, NJ, on the opposite side from Philly. The Independence Seaport Museum is a 12-minute walk from Independence Hall, and Morgan’s Pier is just north along the waterfront from the museum.
