"It was a beautiful weekend, so" the Yelp Cincy elites "finally Left a Good Job in the City, Workin' for the Man Every Night and Day, and headed out to the beautiful Whitewater River in Indiana. And thanks to Yelp and Morgan's Canoe, we were soon Rollin', Rollin', Rollin' on the River…" do do do, doot du doot.
"Mr. Morgan himself graciously welcomed our group and spoke to us about his establishment. It is always great to see someone who is so passionate about their business and Mr. Morgan embodied this." – Kara C

"Once we got our super neat canoe lesson, Yelpers gathered up their belongings (floaties included), threw on a pair of their favorite Yelp sunglasses and we were on our way to the River!
"We were given an option of a kayak or canoe." Kara C and her husband "chose the canoe so we would have enough room for our stuff (AKA beer). This was a great choice for us and we had a lot of fun! We somehow made it the entire trip without flipping over once or getting a divorce. Success!"
"I'm from the Pacific Northwest and love the water. Being focused on life in the city, I often forget outdoor escapes exist. This was a great reminder!" Christine M admits, "This was a lot of fun and I thank Yelp, once again, for a great introduction" to this awesome local business!
"This event couldn't have landed on a better day, weather-wise. It was absolutely gorgeous out. I loved paddling a bit, then letting the kayak glide on its own. It was so relaxing to lean back and look up at the trees, the bright blue sky, and the birds. It was quite a nice reminder of how lovely it is to disconnect from the rest of the world and go on a little adventure like this." – Lauren M
"Sarah D shares, "Once again Yelp has opened me up to a whole new world that never knew I loved! I had such a blast on this outdoor adventure that I immediately told all my friends and family about it and they didn't believe that I went. Sarah canoeing? Inconceivable! Well not anymore—I'm coming back later this month for my step-son's birthday and I'm even branching out to maybe taking a hike!"
After a long day on the River the Yelp elites reconviened for a delicious pizza and popsicle party! ""The pizza from Pizza King was great!" Stephen B shares "Overall, I think that this was a great idea for an event. I'm glad to see Cindy is thinking outside the box, and doing some active events. This was one of my favorite elite events so far!"
"My husband and I have been talking about going canoeing all summer and Yelp provided a great opportunity to try a place that we had actually contemplated. Morgan's Brookville Canoe will be our new go-to for outdoor river adventures and we're already starting to plan our second adventure there." – Krystyna C
