One of the best parts about paddleboarding is you get to see the world from a unique perspective. Paddleboards put you on the water—just about any body of water. And because inflatable paddleboards are relatively small and agile, they can take you to incredible places. While many people first think of lakes and streams surrounded by nature, there’s also an undeniable magic to urban, city-based paddleboarding. Urban paddleboarding is challenging, exciting, and can leave you with breathtaking views worth sharing on social media. Here are three urban destinations around the U.S. worth experiencing from your SUP.

Manhattan—NYC Comes Alive

New York City on foot is already an extraordinary experience for both tourists and locals alike. But if you really want a unique perspective of the city, it’s time to hit the water. Sure, you could take a ferry, a tour boat, or hop on a private yacht (if you’re lucky), but none of those compare to seeing the city from an inflatable paddle board. For one, it puts things into scale. And two, there is simply so much to see from the water. You have three rivers to explore: the East River, Hudson River, and Harlem River. You can’t go wrong with any of them because you’ll see the city in ways most tourists or even locals never do. Just remember, these are busy waterways, so don’t stray too far from shore. Take a buddy or a group and make a day of it.

San Diego—Sunny Days Take You Away

Whether it’s the middle of winter or summer, San Diego is a paddleboarding gem. Much like NYC, there are several excellent spots to choose from. For some chill boarding, head to Mission Bay. Of course, if you want to immerse yourself in the urban setting, San Diego Bay and Coronado Island are the places to be. Take in the sights of downtown San Diego while exploring the many nautical highlights, including the many naval vessels that dock in the bay—keeping a safe distance, of course. Want to do some surfing? Head out of the bays and out to sea. The waters from Silver Strand Beach all the way up to La Jolla can provide some ideal waves for inflatable SUP board surfing. It’s great for newbies and enthusiasts!

Miami—Inflatable SUP Paradise

From the East Coast to the West Coast and back, Miami is a top-notch urban paddleboarding destination. Between Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach, there are a ton of places to hit the water in style. Cruise around Oleta River State Park or stick close to downtown Miami for the perfect action shot. Or picture this, sunrise paddleboarding. Go out on the water along Miami Beach just before sunrise. Then, sit back and take it all in. As the sun rises over the horizon, let the pinks and oranges wash over you. Then as you head back to shore, marvel at the twinkling lights of the cityscape. Then it’s time to head to brunch!
