Every summer I get a group of friends together to do outdoor activities here in Washington DC. DC is one of the fittest cities in the country, with residents running, biking, kayaking, and doing yoga every day. My goal with these events is to encourage health, fitness, and networking. It is important to meet new people who might share similar interests as yourself.
What is the Potomac River?
The Potomac River flows into the Chesapeake Bay and creates a natural border between Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland. “Potomac River is the fourth largest river along the Atlantic coast of the USA and the 21st largest in the USA. The Potomac being nicknamed “the Nation’s River” because George Washington, was born in, surveyed, and spent most of his life within the Potomac basin. Not to mention, All of Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital city, also lies within the watershed.” (Wikipedia)
Washington, D.C. began using the Potomac as its principal source of drinking water since the opening of the Washington Aqueduct in 1864, using a water intake constructed at Great Falls.
What is Jack’s Boathouse?
In my opinion, Jack’s Boathouse is the best place to rent a kayak or canoe and travel on the Potomac River. I am a fan of their laid back setup with reclining chairs, grill, and cool staff! The cost is very reasonable! Rental rates for canoes and kayaks are $35/day and $15/hour. Stand-up paddleboards are $20/hour. I highly encourage you to try it!
