Take a river cruise or private excursion.
Hop on a sunset cruise, book a fishing charter, or take an eco-tour to learn about the local wildlife. You can even add fresh-caught seafood to the mix by chartering to the Tides Inn or Urbanna Seafood & Raw Bar for dinner or take a Bethpager Rivah catered boat cruise.
Glamp, camp, or rough it by the water.
Pitch a tent riverside at Belle Isle State Park or experience deluxe RV-ing at Beth Page campground, the park voted “Best RV Resort in the Nation”. When you stay here you can experience nature’s bounty whichever way you like it: by the water or under the trees.
