Wheel Fun Rentals
When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, 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.
Atop bicycles and surreys built for solo riders or entire families, patrons embark on self-guided tours of major U.S. cities. Led by maps and lists of nearby sites of historical or cultural significance, riders zoom down bike paths and safe, lightly trafficked streets. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts.
Eagle Creek Outfitters
Eagle Creek Outfitters doles our an array of watercraft such as sailboats, kayaks, and canoes, all of which can be used to explore a 1,400-acre lake. Paddle programs, from either kayaks or canoes, are held weekly on Wednesdays at night. During these programs, an experienced guide leads guests around the reservoir, divulging its stories and history while paddlers enjoy the sites and sounds of the area. All gear and instruction is provided.
