America’s Kayaking Capital

Washington offers exciting city views and lively entertainment areas at most locations. Upriver though, the transition from the urban lowlands to rustic Piedmont can be experienced in just a few minutes of paddling. Feeling like you want to get away from the hustle and bustle? Paddle upriver from Fletchers. Want to see the skyline and maybe get a refreshment afterward? Try the Wharf or Ballpark. Want to get a good view of the Monuments? Go downriver from Thompson.
