I did some research beforehand and realized just how many rivers we have to choose from: the Harpeth, the Duck, the Buffalo are just a few, but we decided to stay close to home and took our trip down the Harpeth. There are multiple canoeing places to choose from, but we went with Canoe Music City because it was only $26 for 2 people. What's crazy is that this serene getaway is only 20 minutes from downtown Nashville (on I-40 to Exit 188)... I think it's a great way to spend your free-time and enjoy the pleasures God has blessed us with!
We packed our lunches and cooler and headed down the river- it was miserably hot outside so we made plenty of stops along the 7 mile journey which took us just over 6 hours - we met some interesting people along the way and I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to escape from the city just for the day =)
