At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

It’s day 1 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO Giveaway, featuring a gear prize from SylvanSport and the $10,000 grand prize GO Camper package from SylvanSport.

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.

If you live in the Boston area, or if you’re planning a trip, here are some other activities for you while you’re in the area.

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.

Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and—to him—it feels strange.
