A few weekends ago my friend Lauren and I went on a kayaking and hiking tour of what people call “Silo City.” It was awesome, starting from the inner harbor we kayaked down the lake past General Mills through abandoned industrial buildings that were once prosperous to hiking through silos and the Perot Malt House.

It was a pretty cool experience and you don’t need to be an experienced kayaker either. The tour was $30 per person which I thought was reasonable. Two and a half hours on the water and learning a little history, you can’t beat that.

The inner harbor offers a lot of water activities – not only kayaking, but paddling on surf boards, paddle boats with over sized tires and lots of boat tours.

With only a few more weeks of summer left, if you have time try and head down and check out all there is to offer.
