We actually didn't rent canoes or kayak's, but those big black inner tubes to go riding down the Dan River in! We had the best time. We rented an extra tube to tie our cooler to which was of course filled with *soda* for adults! :) We met so many nice people along our journey down the river! There are two trails you can take, a shorter one (which I recommend if you have kids) or a longer one (which I recommend if you're just hanging out with friends). The dan river company was very accomodating with our requests and drove us to the start of the river!
