Right on the Schuylkill River, just between the Fairmount Water Works and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (you know, those steps that Rocky ran up) is Philadelphia’s Boathouse Row.
This past weekend we took a walk along Boathouse Row. The weather was just too perfect to hide in the Art Museum at the International Pop exhibit’s preview. The sunshine and relatively warmer temperatures were a real hint of spring!
The historic buildings on Boathouse Row date back to the late 19th century and are still in use. Each year, Boathouse Row sees a number of major rowing regattas. One of the regattas is the Dad Vail Regatta, the largest intercollegiate rowing event in the United States. The Victorian style buildings are quaintly decorated and at lit up beautifully at night.
