The city of Boston was built around the Charles River and the Boston Harbor. What's the point of living here if you can't enjoy the water? Dedicated to the thrill (and relaxation) of life on the water, Boating in Boston helps residents embark at several maritime destinations throughout eastern Massachusetts—from Newton and Hopkinton to Spot Pond and Carson Beach. At each location, visitors can rent vessels including kayaks, standup paddleboards, canoes, rowboats, quad pedal boats—and even strap a life jacket to a dog to bring them along for the ride. Additionally, a Boating in Boston season pass grants access to bigger vessels such as sailboats, and instructors lead classes and camps throughout the season to help beginners learn to use a paddle for something other than mixing giant vats of pancake batter.
"All paddling, no politics" is the motto of
Boating In DC. Instead of arguing about which Supreme Court justice's robe is the most stylish, guests can explore the Potomac via kayak, stand-up paddleboard, or pedal boat. During solo-adventures, tours, and introductory lessons, customers take in sights such as Smoot's Cove, Woodrow Wilson Bridge, the Old Town Alexandria skyline, and the National Harbor waterfront. Dogs are also welcome board as Boating In DC stocks Fido-sized life jackets. They've also got yoga classes that take place on paddleboards, and the river makes a convenient spot to rinse off for those who are running late to their Cabinet-nomination hearings.

While the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal runs along much of the Potomac River, from the District of Columbia out to Cumberland, Maryland (a distance of more than 180 miles), Washingtonians are most familiar with the portion between Georgetown and the Maryland border. This section of the C&O Canal, which opened around 1830, is quite quaint, meandering between 19th-century townhouses and updated office buildings. As you head out of Georgetown, the towpath runs parallel to the C&O Canal, making it perfect for hikers, bikers and early-morning runners. While the mule-drawn canal boat ride is no longer available in Georgetown, you can ride it in Great Falls between April and October, with National Park rangers dressed in period clothing serving as tour guides, providing perspective on life along the canal.
