Since the invention of inflation, prices for groceries have skyrocketed and rivers have become traversable. Enjoy the scenic side of economics with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of kayak, pedal-boat, paddleboard, bicycle, and canoe rental at Paddle or Pedal in Chesapeake Beach.
Paddle or Pedal loans shipshape vessels for exploring the abundant wildlife of Fishing Creek and Chesapeake Bay waterways. Cast off on a one-hour canoe voyage ($20), or bike ride ($10) to spot the region's myriad ospreys and blue herons, or claim a single kayak for a full day ($45) of relishing the bay and its beaches. Navigators gliding along Fishing Creek watch bald eagles swoop and jumping fish cannonball into the air from underwater diving boards. Paddlers who pass the marina's charter boats and head through the inlet to reach Chesapeake Bay can explore the twin beaches of the western shore.
