Mystic River

Perfect for all types of paddlers, Mystic River is seven miles long and features several types of urban and rural spots, all of which are sure to satisfy.

Nahanton Park

Looking for something a bit more secluded? In exchange for traveling 18 miles away from Boston, you will be rewarded with one of the best paddling spots in all of Massachusetts. A 12-mile stretch of land and water, Nahanton Park is a prime location for paddlers of all skill levels. Whether it’s your first or hundredth time on the water, you’re sure to appreciate the soothing serenity that surrounds this precious, special location. As if it couldn’t get better, Nahanton Park is home to tons of gorgeous nature, including forests, gardens, and meadows. As a matter of fact, this area is an important part of our final recommendation, the Charles River.

Charles River

To put it simply, the spectacular grandeur of Nahanton Park is only one of many attractions on the Charles River. While it hosts several scenic nature spots, the Charles River also provides its paddlers with some lovely views of Boston landmarks as well. In other words, this one is truly the best of both worlds. During the warmer months of the year, one can fully expect an abundance of people on the water, as the Charles River is an excellent spot for paddling, kayaking, rowing, sailing, etc. Suffice it to say, this is one of the most popular spots in all of Boston, and for good reason, too. Whatever you want to get out of a day on the water, the Charles River will give you all of that and more.
