The James River runs near downtown
Richmond and has had an incalculable
influence on Virginia's capital through the
centuries. Today, along with striking views
and scenic riverside walkways, it offers
actvites such as stand-up paddle boarding
and river ra ing on its Class III to Class IV
rapids running alongside the city's down-

Canal Cruises, offered on covered boats that
depart on the hour from Turning Basin.
Right in the middle of the river sits 54-acre
Belle Isle, accessible by pedestrian bridge.
The litle island is a secton of the James
River Park System and offers hiking, biking,
mountain biking, rock-climbing instructon
and other outdoor actvites.
