Bodies of water are frequent metaphors in poetry due to their unfathomable depths, unknowable sprawl, and unattainable porpoises. Set sail into the enigma with today's Groupon: for $24, you get two tickets to the Secrets of the Schuylkill Boat Tour from Schuylkill Banks River Tours (up to a $50 value). Tours depart from the east side of Schuylkill River beneath the Walnut Street Bridge; departure times vary throughout the season, see the schedule for calendar details.
Schuylkill Banks River Tours' Secrets of the Schuylkill tour explores the history of the Hidden River. Embark on a one-hour voyage that delves into the mystique of the river's past, present, and future. Guides highlight such landmark locations as the historic Bartram's Garden, the magnificent Fairmount Water Works, as well as modern skyscrapers made of recycled iPods. Take advantage of photo ops along the river, which include numerous community projects, parks, and docks.
