This event will transform your regular Wednesday night into an unforgettable experience.
We'll bring the food and the fun, you just have to show up!
Where: Key Bridge Boathouse in Georgetown
When: Wednesday, August 15th from 6pm to 8pm.
Cost: $10 for two hours of blissful paddling with a single/double kayak or standup paddle board.
— OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:
— Be sure to arrive by 7:00 to be able to get out on the water.
— This event is appropriate for all skill levels. Beginners and experts are welcome!
— Please remember to dress appropriately for the weather (rain or shine) and wear clothes you won't mind getting wet.
— In order to reduce waste, we will not provide cups. Be sure to bring a reusable bottle to fill up before heading out on the water.
— One ticket covers the cost of one person.
— Walk/Bicycle: There are many places along M street that bring you down to the C&O canal, or walk down Wisconsin until you arrive at K Street. Walk West (keeping the water to your left) until you find the boathouse beneath Key Bridge.
— From Rosslyn Metro (¾ mile): walk across Key Bridge and take the stairs on either side down to the canal. There are footbridges across the canal that lead to stairs on Water St. Walk back toward the bridge and the boathouse is located directly below Key Bridge.
— From Foggy Bottom Metro (1 mile): From the rotary, walk West on K street toward the waterfront. If you follow the waterfront park, the boathouse is located just on the other side of Key Bridge.
— Driving: Key Bridge Boathouse is located near the very end of K Street, which turns into Water Street. From Georgetown, follow Wisconsin Ave down toward the waterfront, taking a right onto K St/Water St.
— Parking is extremely limited, but there is free 3-hour parking across the street, and a parking garage up by the Lowes Movie Theater.
