In a Nutshell

After staffers go over safety and hand out life vests, kayakers wind through the rivers of the nation's capital

Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with this Groupon.

Ballpark Boathouse

Mr. Smith would have gotten around Washington a lot faster if he had just visited Ballpark Boathouse. The boathouse sits in the shadow of Nationals Park, near the banks of the Anacostia River.

The vessels pass by scenic views of the nation's capital, and unlike a tour bus, even allow dogs (Ballpark Boathouse gladly supplies pet-sized life vests). Before visitors depart on their aquatic adventures, Ballpark Boathouse's staff can give them a beginners' kayaking lesson or visitors can take a walk to the nearby Yard's Park or Diamond Teague Park.
