The Hatton Ferry is the last POLED ferry in America. It crosses the James River. A round-trip takes about 40 minutes and is free, though a small donation is suggested.
It’s about a 40 minute drive from our home. It has very seasonal hours, but I’m marking it on my to-do list for next year as it’s so interesting and unique.
