If your idea of a perfect Rockford evening involves beer, pizza, and taking in the beauty of downtown along the Rock River, you need to book a specialty cruise on the Forest City Queen right now.

I came home from work yesterday to a husband that was all jazzed about going on a Brews Cruise aboard the Forest City Queen. Apparently he just learned this was an option, and I like beer, so I'm all for it too. After hopping on the Rockford Park District's website to book our cruise, I discovered there's a lot of fun cruise options for families, groups and couples to enjoy!

Along with the Brews Cruise that features beer and wine sampling from Prairie Street Brewhouse, the Queen offers :

  • Express Lunch Cruises
  • Dinner on the Rock Cruises that feature food and drinks from Prairie Street Brewhouse
  • BBQ Cruise
  • Pizza Cruise featuring food from Capri
  • Brunch Cruises

These specialty cruises are only available on specific dates and times, so you better read more and book your trip now here.
