In the vibrant Strip District, residents can enjoy bustling streets as well as gorgeous natural sites such as the Allegheny River. Getting out on the water is the best way to cool down while taking in stunning city views. Today, we’re talking all about the many paddle-boarding and rowing options that you can get involved in here in our backyard.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
In the last few years, stand up paddle boarding has become wildly popular in the U.S. and for good reason. Locally owned and operated SUP3Rivers, located at Allegheny Landing, is our pick for all things paddle boarding. SUP is flexible in that it can be done on any body of water, can either be a vigorous workout or a relaxing float, and is just as fun and accessible for beginners as it is for the most experienced paddlers. SUP3Rivers offers a variety of tours and rental services, including a guided lesson for beginners as well as a seven-mile half day fitness tour. Each of their tours features exceptional views of the city and that cool river breeze you can only get on the water. Check them out this season and make it a new summer tradition!
Prefer to be seated for your aquatic adventure? Fear not, Pittsburgh has many rowing options open to the public and newbies as well as seasoned boaters. Three Rivers Rowing Association, located at Washington’s Landing, has plenty of options for all types of rowers. For beginners, they offer both private and group lessons to learn the basics of sculling, and if you fall in love with the sport, Three Rivers hosts a summer league where you can gather a group of friends or co-workers and get involved in the fun. Check their schedule online to learn about their upcoming events and regattas and get in on the adventure this summer season.
