It is that time of year again! Midterms are steadily approaching and the anticipation for fall break is escalating. Instead of bingeing Netflix or scrolling aimlessly through Twitter, head over to Boathouse Row! Only a short trip from campus and home to Saint Joe’s very own boat house, Boathouse Row is the perfect location for a relaxing study break.
Boathouse Row’s location is impossible to beat. Sandwiched between the Schuylkill River and Center City, it offers fantastic views of both. In addition, there are numerous trails raved about by runners, bikers, and dog-walkers alike. If running or biking really isn’t your outlet- don’t fret! Boathouse Row has many other activities to offer.
The numerous forms of entertainment is just another perk of exploring Boathouse Row. If you’re looking for a quick bite to eat, stop in at Cosmic Cafe. Using food produced by local farmers, their menu is fit for all, ranging from breakfast sandwiches to turkey burgers.
Also, be sure to catch crew team practice and regattas. Next Saturday, you’ll be sure to see Saint Joe’s hosting the Navy Day Regatta, a day that’s filled with good-natured competition and enthusiastic spectators.
Well-known for its beautifully lit boat houses lining the Schuylkill River, Boathouse Row is a hidden gem that has so much more to offer. Equipped with beautiful scenery, trails, cafe’s, rich history, and the best view of the city’s regattas, there’s something for everyone!
