Regattas became cool everywhere after the Social Network came out. Sure, you might not have “In the Hall of the Mountain King” playing in the background, but the races here are terrific nevertheless. The fifteen boathouses, each owned by a particular club all have their own history – and they are all at least a century old. You want to know the history of each? Go visit – they’ll only be too eager to tell you. These boathouses are the centre of most rowing sports in the US, holding events at all levels from high school al the way up to nationals. In the 1970’s they were done up with pretty lights – which when lit, give the effect of a shining Gingerbread House. This unusual place has thus been named a national historic landmark. Most of the Boathouses here are part of group called the Schuylkill Navy.  If not here for the races, the road along the riverside here makes for a terrific cycling, jogging or walking track.
