While being called lazy might be considered offensive to some, the Grand River doesn’t seem to mind. This Canadian Heritage River has some serious history and it’s in no big rush to change its ways. Connect with a local outfitter and glide its gentle currents by canoe, kayak, stand-up paddle board or river raft. Drop a line or throw a fly and try to tempt its bass, rainbow trout, brown trout, pike and perch. Or simply spend a few hours thinking “ain’t life Grand,” while watching the world drift by from a riverside patio.
