It's got a zoo, a parkway, and lots of green space, but Rock Creek's not gonna cut it when it comes to extreme water sports. If your idea of excitement on the open water is more rapids and less babbling brook, head upstream with this Adventure: a springtime whitewater rafting trip and catered barbecue meal in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, with round-trip transportation.
We'll start by gathering at LivingSocial's new headquarters at 918 F Street, where our team of oarsmen will be waiting to usher us onto buses. After a short drive, we'll drop anchor at Harper's Ferry Adventure Center headquarters before suiting up (optional wet suit and splash top rental will be available on site for an additional $15) and setting out for two to three hours of spills and thrills with our trained guides in a river setting rich in wildlife and natural beauty.
When we've successfully navigated the rapids, we'll pull into port and be whisked away to our very own private mountain for a barbecue lunch catered by Big Daddy's BBQ, featuring open fire pits and a smorgasbord of chicken, pork, hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, cole slaw, potato salad, and assorted non-alcoholic drinks (those of us who want something stronger are free to bring our own). After lunch, we'll re-board the bus and head back to the city. Rock Creek may not be going anywhere fast, but we can't say the same about this Adventure, so climb aboard before it drifts on by.
