Take a 2 – 3 hour stand up paddling (SUP) tour of Nashville’s Cumberland River with Big Willie’s Action Sports.

The fun begins when you meet the “Willie Wagon” at Downtown Nashville’s Riverfront Park.

You’ll then be transported to Shelby Park and use the gentle current of the Cumberland River to glide past beautiful vistas and scenes of downtown Nashville.

The entire tour runs $65 per person, but if you have a group of five or more friends that drops to only $55 per person to take in views of the city you won’t find anywhere else. Don’t worry if you’ve never paddle boarded before, they provide lessons before you begin and make it a great afternoon for beginners and experienced paddle boarders alike.

With how nice the weather is predicted to be this weekend, you may want to reserve your spot now!
