KAYAKING
From thrill-seekers challenging whitewater rapids to those looking
for a quiet relaxing way to rediscover Nature, kayaking is an activity
perfect for summer. Chances are, there is some sort of body of
water near your home. In fact, Maryland is such a water-rich state
that the Department of Natural Resources has mapped extensive
water trails from the Eastern Shore to the Western Potomac under
its Greenways and Water Trails Program.

Whether you’re kayaking
for the first time or an experienced pro, here are just
some of the many area places to sample:
