When most people think of getaways, they assume they have to be tropical. That is not necessarily true! There is much relaxation and rejuvenation to be provided by beautiful rivers too. Here are a few of the best river destinations in the U.S.
San Juan Islands
Visitors arrive by seaplane are provided with the opportunity to enjoy an evening boat ride across the water. Catch a boat ride at the right time and you will be able to see the stars intensified by the bioluminescent glow of the water.
The beauty of the Colorado River lies in the fact that water naturally transitions from erupting whitewater to cascading waterfalls to still creeks down the entire length of Colorado. Choose the right tour and you’ll be able to see it all.
Pittsburgh has gracefully restored its rivers and offers travellers and residents alike:
- Riverside trails
- Riverfront picnic, biking, and jogging space
- 150-foot reflecting pool at Point State Park.
- pop-up outdoor art gallery
When you think of Texas do you think of beautiful blue rivers? Probably not. Surprisingly enough, Austin, Texas is home to the country’s first surf park and the three-acre Barton Springs pool. The most interesting thing about Lake Austin is it has a year-round temperature of 68 degrees.
