My wife and I recently rented a canoe and took the River Raisin loop trip. It's a great trip consisting of about half flat water and then a nice run down the river back to the start; as a result no shuttle needed. The trip is scenic and secluded allowing the paddler to imagine they are many miles from cities or traffic. That trip takes about an hour or so, but there are longer ones for folks with more time. The water moves along, but we always felt safe and would be comfortable taking young kids.
This is an inexpensive trip for anyone looking for a quick getaway.
