Riverfront Canal Cruises is releasing a new 360-degree video featuring a virtual canal boat tour with a historic narrative.
The narration from one of our most-experienced batteau drivers touches on the SOLs for Virginia Studies and US History to 1865, assisting fourth and fifth graders as they complete the school year. Of course, this 360-degree tour of the canal isn’t just for kids! Children and adults of all ages will enjoy Richmond’s amazing history.
The canal cruise video references and expounds on specific Virginia SOL standards along with so much more Richmond history. Those detailed standards included in the tour can be found on the Venture Richmond website.
The virtual 360-degree experience simulates an actual tour of the canal in the authentic boats, while seeing the restored James River and Kanawha Canal, the scenic Canal Walk, the Tidewater Connection Locks from 1853, the unique Triple Crossing railroads, historic architecture, the Virginia Capital Trail, the Low Line gardens, and James River wildlife.
