You're in the mood for fast aquatics, but arranging an impromptu slip n' slide down Valencia is like going bowling with a beach ball. Do better with this Adventure: 3.5 hours of river rafting on the Stanislaus River with a pizza party and optional round-trip transportation.
Those who need a ride can choose a date when transportation is offered for an additional cost and gather at 340 Brannan Street in San Francisco, where we'll meet our rafting team who'll be waiting with breakfast, including a bagel sandwich, piece of fruit, and a beverage. We'll then board our luxury coach bus bound for Sunshine Rafting Adventures in Knights Ferry. (Some dates don't offer transportation, so you'll have to drive yourself.) After we arrive at the awe-inspiring banks of the Stanislaus, we'll receive a brief safety tutorial and introduction and then collect our life vests and paddles. We'll then split into groups of eight and load into our vessels for an unbridled 3.5-hour trek through the river's Class I and II rapids and paddle by rock escarpments, Gothic revival homes, and rich flora of the Sierra Nevada foothills. We might even catch a glimpse of the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi.
With appetites whipped up, we'll dry off and dive into a pizza meal from Pizza Plus, Inc, including three slices of pepperoni or cheese pizza, cheesy breadsticks, a garden salad with our choice of three dressings, soda or water, and any other, ahem, amenities we may have brought along. Even better, we'll feast at Orange Blossom Park, taking in the elevated views of the river. After a day on the river, we'll be as happy as a Chinook salmon skipping upstream—albeit, without the bears.
