While in and around Chesapeake, VA, travelers are sure to stop at put-in locations at some of Chesapeake’s best waterways, views, and parks, so why not make a game of it with the Paddle the Peake Passport? This interactive adventure will add some triumph to your trip by inviting you to level up with each check-in you achieve.
With levels that are based on the number of unique locations you check into, eager voyagers can make a game of seeing just how many spots they can nab during their time in town. And, of course, the more places you visit, the more points you’ll earn. Plus, the app comes with a list of handy Paddling Safety Tips, so you can easily brush up on the rules of the water right before leaving land.
