James River

With views of downtown Richmond just beyond, take a rafting trip down the James River. The 348-mile-long river is the 12th-longest river in America exclusively contained within a single state. We recommend a white-water rafting trip down the Lower James River, arguably one of the best urban white-water experiences in the US.
