Riding the Lorena

The Lorena Sternwheeler is back in business this summer.

Public rides have been scheduled starting June 5th and continuing through October.

"You can also think about chartering the Lorena Sternwheeler for a birthday or anniversary or for just a family ride, " says Kelly Ashby of the Zanesville Chamber of Commerce.

Ashby says the rides are as popular as ever.

"They get to experience a relaxing ride. They get to experience the Muskingum River. It’s a historic river channel as well, " says Ashby.

With people trying to conserve a little money, Ashby says far away destinations are turning into close-at- home vacations that the family can still enjoy.
