Best Way to Earn Yourself an ICEE while Protecting Your Mother: Green Acres Canoe and Kayak Rental

Green Acres Canoe and Kayak Rental offers canoe, kayak and tube rentals for humans to sit in to take a trip down the Whitewater River. Rent the crafts per person for either three, five or eight miles — depending on how long you feel like floating — and sign yourself up for several hours of outdoor adventure (or relaxation). You can bring coolers on the canoes or kayaks but there is a general policy against cabrewing. And if you’re looking to entertain the under-21 crowd, kids (who must be at least 4-years-old and 40 pounds to ride) can become honorary “Litter Gitters” on the river. Green Acres will give kids a plastic bag to fill up with trash — like a kind of cleaning scavenger hunt. When they hand it in at the end of the trip, they get a free treat: an ICEE. The Whitewater is already classified as one of the cleanest rivers in the Tri-State by the Ohio EPA, but extra little helpers are always appreciated.
