Foggy Bottom Canoe & Kayak

Location

Why We Love It

If you want to explore the Harpeth river, we suggest doing so through Foggy Bottom rentals. The owners are a gem and we always have a fun time. Their canoes are well cared for and the staff if friendly.

Local Tip

We highly suggest not just showing up and booking well in advance! Don’t forget fido on this one – they’re pup friendly, too!

Cumberland Kayak

Location

Why We Love It

If skyline views are more your thing, you can choose to kayak (or paddle board) on the Cumberland River. This river runs right between Downtown Nashville and East Nashville so your views will include Honky Tonks, Nissan Stadium and the Batman Building!

Local Tip

There is little shade since you’re on the river by the skyline. Highly recommend hats, sunscreen and as always, a lot of water!

Nashville Paddle Co (SUP rentals)

Location

Why We Love It

If you haven’t tried SUP (stand up paddle boarding), we highly recommend it. Even if you have two left feet (like me) it’s an easy way to enjoy an activity on the water. Percy Priest Lake offers a beautiful setting and we have had great experiences with renting boards from Nashville Paddle Co.

Local Tip

Definitely reserve your rental or class in advance – their spots fill up quickly.

Paddle Dog Adventures

Location

Why We Love It

If you haven’t tried SUP (stand up paddle boarding), we highly recommend it. Even if you have two left feet (like me) it’s an easy way to enjoy an activity on the water. Westhaven is a small community in Franklin, TN with a small lake. Paddle Dog offers SUP rentals on the lake – and when you’re done, be sure to grab a hot dog! 🙂

Local Tip

This is a smaller lake and company so be sure to reserve your rental in advance online.
