The Athens of America
Boston’s Charles River is one of the most beautiful urban canoeing locations in the whole of the United States. Canoeing along this picturesque river allows you to truly take in the scale and majesty of Boston. You will wind your way past Harvard, MIT and Boston University en route to a spectacular view of the Boston skyline. The rates are very reasonable and offer a cheap and thoroughly enjoyable activity. A standard canoe costs just €12 an hour and €48 for the day. There are also double, quad and kids kayaks available if you are interested in something a little different.
