Rivanna River Company
You can rent kayaks or tubs to float down the river in the warm summer months!
The best and only river trips, just 5 min away! Tubing, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding. Fantastic fun and relaxation for a group, family, or date.
RRC is run by our good friends Gabe and Sonya- take a tube, stand up paddle board, kayak, or canoe down the Rivanna River, and enjoy Charlottesville's landscape from a totally new perspective! We take our kids (3&1) down the river as much as possible. It's no Gauley or New River, but it makes for…
“Forest Hills Park has the best spray park in Charlottesville. It can get wild on a hot summer afternoon, but it's within walking distance.”
“If it’s hot and you want to take your kids swimming, take them to this super fun aquatic park. Slides, a diving board, all sorts of fun stuff, plus a zero entry pool great for little tykes. It can get very crowded, so get there early to get a chair.”
“Mexican fusion spot with fun patio and good margaritas. The street corn is delicious. Gets mixed reviews, but we've always enjoyed our meals here.”
“It’s as easy to grab a good, kid-friendly taco here as it is to grab an amazingly delicious taco for you. You order at the counter and they bring the food out to you. Indoor and outdoor seating, absolutely kid friendly. Space outside for kids to run around and be kids. Great margaritas. ”
