This premier urban kayaking experience explores the river above St. Anthony Falls and delves into the industrial history of the city from the unique and beautiful perspective of the river. We first explore Minneapolis heritage by rolling the kayaks down to the river on a short walk through the historic warehouse district. We then gain a new perspective on today’s great city by viewing the historical importance of the river by slipping into kayaks gliding past and investigating important landmarks such as Nicollet Island, Boom Island, the Grain Belt Brewery, and much more!
