6 Spots for Watersports Enthusiasts

1 of 7

Escaping the hot rays of the summer sun and its persistent heat often means seeking shelter indoors, with the air conditioning blasted, slipping in the tepid waters of the pool or seeking the comfort of the ocean. But for those who are landlocked, as are those in North Wilmington and on the Main Line, the many rivers and tributaries can provide both a refreshing escape and summer fun. The area’s rivers and creeks are easily accessible for a myriad of watersports, from kayaking to canoeing to tubing and even paddleboarding. This summer, grab some sunscreen and a paddle and head to one of these six watercourse escapes.
