Paddle & Pints - Bridge of Flowers to Floodwater Brewery

Shelburne Falls (49 Conway Street)

A relaxed, 1-mile wandering loop paddle from O'Malley Park in Buckland that will take us around the world-famous Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, and up to Floodwater Brewing Company where we'll stop and decide on a local spot for dinner. Of course, we will also enjoy a brew from Floodwater's delicious selection of beers on tap.

Following dinner, we will stroll over to Mo's Fudge Factor for some world-class ice cream, freshly-made fudge, or maybe even a tasty milkshake - the options for a sweet treat are nearly endless! The official excursion ends here so that you may enjoy the sights of this quintessential New England town and return to your car on your own schedule.
