Every day we are constantly surrounded by smart phones, computers, tablets, televisions, and even tech savvy cars. Being plugged in is great. but sometimes we all need a break! At River Expeditions, we welcome you to take a weekend off from being “connected” and experience nature as it was meant to be experienced. So grab a couple of friends from the office, and come down to Oak Hill, West Virginia; home of the New River Gorge.
The New River Gorge is known for its breathtaking beauty, regardless of the season. The West Virginia panhandle is a hidden gem, unknown to many in the Greater Washington DC metropolis, only a few hours drive away. Rafting is a great way to release much of the stress caused by daily life in the high pressure office atmosphere. While you are on the water, take a second to look around and appreciate the beauty and life found in nature that people often come to miss when living in the cities.
Once your day on the river has come to an end, you can choose to continue down the rustic path and spend the night in the tent, or if you would prefer an evening spent in comfort similar to home, rent one of River Expeditions spacious Luxury Cabins. For the chance to experience nature, good company, and good beer, wander on down to the Red Dog River Saloon, where you can enjoy the great outdoors while enjoying live music, games, and a great atmosphere.
In addition to rafting, there are many other great outdoor activities and adventures to be found in the New River Gorge. Some of these activities include hiking, ATV riding, paintball, horseback riding, float rides, and rock climbing; to name a few! The local towns also feature a great small town, “homey” feel with diverse food and local shopping opportunities.
So, the next time you’re feeling the need for a tan, but without the sand and stress related to a traditional vacation, come down to Oak Hill, West Virginia. The fresh mountain air will rejuvenate your senses, and the excitement of rafting will raise your senses; an ideal combination to return refreshed to the office with. Whenever you are ready, the rivers are waiting!
