During our stay in southern Indiana, we spent a little time in Louisville, Kentucky as it’s just a short drive across the bridge. While there, we took a sunset dinner cruise aboard the Mary M. Miller. Our family visit was part of a familiarization tour with GoSoIn. All opinions are my own.
The Mary M. Miller was named for Mary Millicent Miller, the first woman to procure her steamboat captain’s license in 1884. There are multiple sailing options and prices vary, but I recommend the evening sunset cruise with dinner. The views are worth it, so romantic.
The Mary M. Miller sails from the Louisville Wharf, a neat place to visit especially if you love history. The list of visitors from the 1800’s include Abraham Lincoln, Charles Dickens, Walt Whitman, and so many more.
A table was reserved for our party, so no need to beat the crowd to arrive first…though we did anyway. We enjoyed a hearty buffet that included salad, meats, sides, desserts, and tea, lemonade, or water to drink.
The assigned seating is mainly for dinner. Afterward we wondered around the boat until we found our favorite place to view the beautiful riverside sights.
After a long day of visiting museums, sitting back and enjoying the sunset was the perfect ending to a fun filled day.
With our tummies full, we sat back and told stories, and laughed and laughed while taking in the gorgeous countryside.
I loved every minute! The end of the cruise brought us back to Louisville as the sun was going down.
It was a great opportunity to get a shot of the night skyline!
Headed to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby soon? Set aside some time to take in the sights aboard the Mary M. Miller!
While in the area we also recommend Joe Huber’s Farm and Restaurant, Hiking the Big Four Bridge, and these 6 Museums in southern Indiana. For more ideas of how to spend your time in southern Indiana click here>>> SoIn
