The first stop of our #GetOutAndGO Road Trip Giveaway is the 27.7-mile Charles River Reservation Bike Loop. If you live in or near Boston, this is a fantastic resource to #GetOutAndGO.
This dog-friendly trail runs along the Charles River from Boston to surrounding areas such as Cambridge and Newton.
It’s a popular boating destination and features a 27-mile bike loop that will transport you from the heart of the city to riverside solitude in a matter of minutes. Cruise through the campuses of MIT, Boston University, and Harvard, or seek an escape from the city. Whatever you’re feeling, the Charles River has it all.
From cycling to running to walking, the Charles River Loop and the Charles River itself provide mile after mile of incredible views, and all originating in the heart of the city.

Get Out And Explore the Charles River
Want to see the city from a unique perspective? Head over to Charles River Canoe and Kayak where you can rent Stand Up Paddle-boards (SUP), kayaks, canoes, and more. There is nothing quite like paddling underneath Weeks Bridge and watching boats row past you at full speed.
Here are a couple different ways to experience the river’s great outdoor spaces.
