One of the major events on today’s Olympic schedule is whitewater kayaking. Basically, individual kayakers have to navigate through gates on a man-made whitewater course. And if you really enjoy watching the sport, why not try it yourself. The best place to do that in our region is South Bend, Indiana. The East Race Waterway is 1900 feet and has Class 2 rating in terms of whitewater. Kayaking in South Bend is not for beginners, but it also offers whitewater rafting for a small fee. And this section of the St. Joseph River has five miles of trail along its course. It’s really fun to watch the kayakers from the trails.
