When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
Reber River Trips offer the best of what's old and what's new?via raft, kayak, or tube. Though their boat launch on the Delaware River is one of Barryville's newest, the Reber family has been helping guests who are exploring leisurely wilderness adventures in the region since 1947.
For a trip through history, the Rebers can direct boaters and floaters to especially well-preserved portions of the waterway, where adventurers can keep their eyes peeled for eagles and deer. Rod-brandishers reel in the river's plentiful assortment of fish, and party rafts host up to 20 revelers and up to three pi?atas filled with trout.
