A popular destination for city runners and skyline afficianados, the 128-mile Schuylkill River is home to historic and diverse recreational and cultural attractions. The river winds its way through the city, past the Philadelphia Museum of Art and famed Boathouse Row, and stretches into the historic grounds of Valley Forge and beyond.
