Review

The perfect blend between urban escape and outdoor adventure, River Queen Voyages takes you along the picturesque Cumberland River. Paddle under Briley Parkway, along the river houses in Madison & East Nashville, past Opryland (and maybe the General Jackson showboat!), Shelby Bottoms greenway, and see the downtown Nashville skyline in the distance! 

River Queen Voyages offers one of the most unique, and often overlooked, perspectives for both tourist and locals alike.  With two different trips to choose from, the 8-MILE LOCK TWO PARK TO SHELBY PARK  or  3-MILE SHELBY PARK TO RIVERFRONT PARK, River Queen Voyages will provide an enjoyable way to see Nashville from the river while rejuvenating from our hyper-connected lives.
