(TEMPORARILY CLOSED) General Jackson Showboat
Experience Nashville as it can best be seen from the beautiful Cumberland River on the General Jackson Showboat. While “rollin’ down the river,” you’ll enjoy stunning views, a delicious meal freshly prepared by their chefs and toe-tapping entertainment in the two-story Victorian Theater in the center of the boat.
One of the largest showboats ever built, the grand General Jackson is an elegant triumph of American ingenuity. With its elegant lacy filigree and stately design, the boat is reminiscent of the opulence of the American Victorian era.
The General Jackson Showboat is named after the first steamboat to operate on the Cumberland River in 1817 which was named after President Andrew Jackson, whose historic home—The Hermitage—is 15 minutes from the dock.
Built by the largest inland shipbuilder in the United States, Jeffboat, located in Indiana, the General Jackson was launched on the Cumberland River on April 20, 1985.
