Tubing, rafting, boarding

For those looking for fun ways to beat the heat of Richmond summers, the region enjoys more than 550 acres of shoreline and islands, including most of the fall line of the James River. Rocks, rapids, meadows and forests make for an area of unspoiled natural beauty — wilderness in the heart of the city — that can be enjoyed by kayaking, tubing, rafting or boarding.

Riverside Outfitters offers visitors the chance to explore the James River and its shoreline through kayak, canoe, tube and river board rentals or guided trips.
