And overall, I have to say it was one of the most relaxing activities I’ve done in a long time in town. Once you get into that river, you can paddle your way to a clear, relaxed mind and of course, get some much-needed exercise. Last day to kayak for free until next summer is on August 15, so be sure to check it out!
