If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are
    good for beginners. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more. The nearby hotels are
a bit away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. The wonderful Pennsylvania scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile.
