Boathouse Row is located on the east bank of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The row consists of 15 boathouses including some for rowing clubs, housing socials and the Schuylkill Navy. All of the boathouses are at least a century old.

Boathouse Row can be seen lit up at night when driving past them on the highway. Colleges around the area such as University of Pennsylvania, Drexel and La Salle row out of houses here. The houses are designated National Historic Landmarks and on the National Register of Historic Places.
