Good way to get across river. Fun to watch boats on hot day. Cheap, and fun. Very useful on bike. But steep hill getting off.

We took my father-in-law on an afternoon drive and crossed the river on this ferry. It is a cable guided, electric ferry and was a fun diversion for our family. The kids will love the experience of driving onto the ferry and crossing a river.
