Millenium Run Canoe Tour
- Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Grand rapids, Michigan
- Product code: PCJR9G
Canoe past several buildings and structures that define the city skyline, and then you will be quickly thrust into nature and back in a matter of hours on the Grand.
This tour will start at just north of the Fulton Street Bridge in Grand Rapids. You will be assigned a kayak(s), along with life vests and paddles. The trip down river begins with launching from the park and paddling down river underneath several bridges of downtown. The city skyline begins to change from tall buildings to parks and trees. You will see three historic railroad bridges that have been converted into walking bridges. After you go underneath the eye 96 overpass, you leave the city and you begin to experience pure nature. The river twists and turns making you think that you are hours away from home. You can watch as bicyclists ride the trails on both sides of the river. After a couple of hours, you're brought back to the reality that you were never that far away from home. You see Johnson Park on your right side, Wilson Street Bridge in front of you, and the freeway traffic off to the right. It is a nice experience to get away when you really have not been that far from home.
Waiting for you at the dock is the same van and trailer that you were assigned equipment from. The driver will take equipment and load it as you will board the van for transportation back to the parking lot where your car is.
