Lose track of time as you float on your tube, down the waves & riffles of historic Antietam Creek. A scenic stream that winds its way through a canopy of trees, Antietam features stone arch bridges and some of the area’s best wildlife viewing, including turtles, kingfishers, and wood ducks. On this family-friendly tubing Antietam Creek adventure, you’ll float through a cornerstone of our nation’s history, listening as River & Trail’s professional guides share their stories of the Civil War. At lunch time, guides will serve you a creek-side picnic, while you relax and unwind in a meadow Julie Andrew’s would love. After the Maryland tubing trip, take your car for a 15 minute leisurely drive on scenic back roads that lead you to Sharpsburg – a sleepy Civil War-era town. Get your fill of Nutter’s hand-dipped ice cream – watch out for the Java Chunk, it’s deadly delicious!
