The Chautauqua Belle brings the Industrial Revolution's innovation and muscle back to life with cruises held aboard the historic open-air steamboat. The eponymous vessel glides across the calm surface of Chautauqua Lake as guides educate guests of all ages on the lake's colorful history. Guests can enjoy snacks and libations from the full-service bar as they glimpse picturesque beaches and lush forests during dinner, fireworks, and private charters or narrated history tours.
young man (then 18!) who saved this great steamboat from the scrap heap, has recorded a terrific narration, including sights, history, and tall talesnysq1
It was also a real treat to see the beautiful homes of the Institution from offshore and learn about thier history and owners.acmepanda
