Loved the lake, the views, the workout, and the tour guide was excellent. Lots of interesting facts about the city. A fantastic plan for family on weekends. Will get there again soon.

Great evening kayak tour up the river to see the bats fly out from under the bridge at sunset. Fun kayaking, beautiful skyline view and very competent and knowledgeable guide!
