Many commercial outfits run portions of this section. A lot of people put in at Rocky Rapid and float to take out beach. You can make the run from hittle bottom to take out beach in a day easily (even at low water).
This is another possible access point. There is no ramp but you can access the river from Highway 128 here. Not a bad option for kayakers. Especially if take out beach is crowded with commercial trips.
This rapid is surprisingly rocky. Run the main wave train that moves left to right. If you want to land at Rocky Rapid boat launch you will need to pull hard left into the left water channel at the bottom of the rapid. The river pools above this rapid so you will have plenty of time to scout your line from your boat and then position yourself accordingly.
When you see the Red Cliffs Adventure Lodge property this rapid will be around the corner. Run right of center. At lower water levels the left side is shallow and rocky. Kayaks could probably find a level anywhere.
This can be used as a put-in or take-out if you want to shorten or lengthen your Moab daily run. If you are taking out here you will have to pull left on rocky rapid to get into the left channel.
Arguable the biggest rapid on this stretch of the Colorado, and certainly flippable at larger flows above 25,000cfs. Follow the wave train to the left of river center for the bigger water. Frequent, strong eddy at conclusion of rapid on river left, especially at large flow levels. Rocky start to rapid at lower levels around 5,000cfs. This is a great beginner run for all watercraft. At higher water flows the run gets pushier and more exciting. Even though the river looks tame, swimmers should be aware of strong currents. Always wear your lifejacket on this stretch of river. The following fish species are often found on this run. If you don’t see a fish that you know lives on this river, please login and associate that fish species.Where Highway 191 crosses the Colorado river there is a boat ramp to the east on the north side of the river bridge. If you are near the bridge you will be able to see and figure out how to get to the ramp.

There are at least four separate crags in this area. Take the well-trodden trail across from Take-out Beach parking area. Scramble up the break in the cliff, then head right to the stage. Keep walking above the cliff band to the Theater, and farther right to the Cinema. See “High on Moab” by Karl Kelly for more info, but be aware there’s been lots of new routes added since the book was published. Make America’s most beloved beach the backdrop to your most beloved memories. From private beach bonfires with s’mores to plush pool cabanas and surf lessons, make new memories in a magical beachfront setting. Choose from casual toes-in-the-sand tacos and cocktails, to fireside bites overlooking the sunset, to pizza and grab-n-go sandwiches, to fresh-catch sustainable seafood with wine.
Indulge your mind, body, and spirit. Inspired by the healing power of the ocean, our Spa & Salon offers an array of luxurious treatments and wellness activities that leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. More flatwater leads to New Rapid followed fairly closely by Rocky Rapid. The section after Rocky Rapid is a good stretch to stop for lunch, with many good sites on the right to stop at. Continuing down, Professor Creek’s entry to the Colorado provides the next rapid. Again, it shortly gives way to flat water. In this section, Castleton Tower, the Convent, and Sister Superior become visible in the distance on the left. These towers loom over Castle Valley. Castleton Tower, in particular, stands proudly out on its own (the distinct tower on the far left in the distance). It is a destination and goal of many climbers. (The easiest route, the Kor route, goes at old school 5.8)
Hardcore river rafters may find this section boring. If you are looking for extreme river rafting, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a casual day out, with exquisite scenery, this is a good choice. It is busy on weekends in the summer, but both the put-in and takeout offer ample parking. Although a shuttle is helpful, hitchhiking is also a good option.
The trip is beginning to wind down at this point. A few more easy riffle sections and Salt Wash rapid mark the end of the trip. Just past Salt Wash rapid, Take Out Beach appears on the left. It is generally busy with guide companies getting clients and boats from the river. Be considerate and unload quickly if busy. There is a beach for landing, but also a ramp 30 m ( 99 ft. ) down river from the beach you can drive down to load your boat.Likely the most floated stretch of river in Utah, the Moab Daily is a class III section of the Colorado River near Moab. The 14-mile section is extremely popular with families, locals, and guiding companies. Although class III, this is a float that is beginner friendly at flows below about 10,000 cfs. Above about 10K cfs, it is solid class III. The rapids, 6 in the 14 miles, with several smaller rifles and wave sections, are all separated by long stretches of flat water that gives beginners a chance to re-group after each short rapids section.
From Hittle Bottom, the river lazily floats along, as Fisher Towers comes into view in the distance on the left. Soon enough, where Onion Creek enters the Colorado, the first rapid is encountered. (Onion Creek Rapid) It is generally easiest on the left and quickly gives way to flat water.
This is the version of our website addressed to speakers of English in the United States. If you are a resident of another country or region, please select the appropriate version of Tripadvisor for your country or region in the drop-down menu.The Take Out Beach is also the prime put-in for fly-fishing float trips on the Middle Fork, one of the premiere destinations in America and renowned for dry-fly fishing for Westslope Cutthroat Trout.
Officially, on maps it’s called the “West Glacier River Access Boating Site”. Sounds very technical. Maybe that’s why everybody just knows it as the “Take Out Beach”.
Caiti Woods from Glacier Guides says it’s a busy spot. Glacier Guides may run five or six launches a day on a busy summer day, and some have up to five boats. “We load up and move our trips out of there, but we also like to just relax there after a trip, too,” she says. Guides linger with guests, chatting about the river, the mountains and life in Glacier National Park.Next time you’re in West Glacier and wanting to get to know the Middle Fork, this is the spot to start. Or maybe to finish. Or maybe to just stand still.
Rafting tours converge here. Upstream is the stretch with Class II and III rapids that begins at Moccasin Creek and goes through high canyons and past huge mountains. Downstream is the more mellow stretch of the Middle Fork, a leisurely float to Blankenship Bridge.
For river lovers, it’s a prime opportunity to connect with one of North America’s most beloved waterways, and to contemplate the personality of it. If you love the Flathead, you’ll likely love it here. You can meet fellow river-lovers, and chat about their favorite sections and favorite fishing spots.Just downstream from the village of West Glacier (and from the Old Belton Bridge), the Take Out Beach is perhaps the finest spot to start or finish your experience on the incredibly scenic and special Middle Fork of the Flathead River. It’s the epicenter of a river-loving community.

A classic South Shore destination, the Nantasket Beach boardwalk got a retro-modern upgrade in 2018 with the debut of the throwback-hipster Paragon Boardwalk. This season, the collection of beachy businesses includes mini-golf and stand-up paddleboard rentals, plus dining options. Among the latter: A new location of Joseph’s Pizza, which has served up Sicilian-style pie by the slice and sheet on Nantasket Beach for more than 50 years; and a weekend menu of tacos, crispy chips and guacamole, summer salads, and more from Pearl & Lime, a forthcoming Quincy Center taqueria from the team behind the Townshend cocktail bar. From the beach, take a stroll along the ArtWalk to pick up your takeout, or park and pick up on your way to the water.
Pack up your canvas tote with plastic cups, can koozies, and plenty of hand sanitizer: The beach is summer 2020’s hottest dining destination. Though restaurants around the Bay State are opening up their dining rooms for socially distanced service, science says outside is still the safest place to be while the country continues to reign in COVID-19. Luckily, besides plenty of new outdoor decks at city restaurants, Massachusetts also has dozens of beautiful beaches open to the public—with plenty of awesome takeout options nearby. (Just watch out for food-snatching seagulls, and remember to take your trash with you.)
Whether your perfect day features hefty sandwiches and bags of chips at an urban beach oasis, or a serene spread of seafood in a secluded nook of the South Shore, add these eight quirky takeout itineraries to your summer 2020 bucket list.
If you wake up the morning of a perfect beach day humming “Here Comes the Sun,” make your first stop this time-honored Eastie sub shop, which is always playing classic rock to match the floor-to-ceiling memorabilia of everyone from the Beatles to the Doors. Not only will you hear your favorite jams, but you’ll also be rewarded with ideal beach fare: Extra-loaded sandwiches like classic Italian cold cuts; cracked pepper-turkey and cheese; a BLT wrap; and the popular Godfather sub, stuffed with imported Parma prosciutto, a fried chicken cutlet, tomato, fresh mozzarella, and roasted red peppers. There are also bottled sodas, and a huge selection of vintage candies to choose from. Take it all to-go to watch planes take off from the sandy shore of Constitution Beach. A Roy’s lunch with a side of runway-gazing makes for a uniquely Eastie afternoon, says Alexis Cervasio, East Boston Oysters founder and local beach bum.
While Bathing Beach is actually much closer to this Hingham Harbor seafood shack, we say that Minot Beach is the more perfect place to spend a South Shore day, thanks to its fun natural features like tide pools for swimming and a large rock to jump off. Whichever beach you choose, call the Hingham Lobster Pound ahead of time to order up a couple of steamed lobsters to bring with you, or opt for classic options such as fried haddock and curly fries, whole-belly clams, grilled scallops, and cheeseburgers.If you’re heading to a scenic spot in the seaside city of Beverly, let a star chef and ex-pat from the Boston fine-dining scene help pack your picnic basket. One option is Frank, a cafe and marketplace from farmer, fisherman, and former L’Espalier restauranteur Frank McClelland. Located across the street from Beverly’s train station, Frank is stocked with provisions like freshly baked baguettes, spreads, snacks, and salads, plus a great selection of packaged craft beers and wine. You can also order prepared food to-go, from all-day egg sandwiches and cups of cold-brew, to sumac fried chicken and a house-made ginger-pineapple tonic. Or, check out Ellis Square Social, which is currently offering a beefy barbecue menu on the weekends from chef Jay Murray, the longtime grillmaster at Grill 23. Now, about the locale: Beloved Beverly beach Lynch Park charges a fee to park to enjoy its two beaches, blooming rose and flower gardens, and amenities like public bathrooms. Dane Street Beach, meanwhile, is a quieter park, with a small lot plus street parking on Lothrop.If you’re looking for lunch, visit Southie wine shop and deli American Provisions for subs on the way to the beach. To fortify yourself for an early-evening stroll along Dorchester Bay, though, turn to self-proclaimed “water baby” and award-winning chef Karen Akunowicz. Her Fox & the Knife opens for prepared-food takeout at 5:30 p.m., so you can sup on summery items like nectarine panzanella, salmon with braised greens and farro, and hand-packed pints of gelato (the cheesy focaccia knows no season) beneath a beautiful, pre-dusk view of the Boston skyline from Carson Beach.
There are plenty of sandy, scenic spots at the beaches in the Ocean Bluff-Brant Rock section of Marshfield—and there’s also plenty of beach-friendly fare on the takeout menu from Mae’s Sandwich Shop. Mae’s opened fall 2019 from partners Sam Kauff (Ashmont Grill, 51 Lincoln) and Eileen Price (Bagelsaurus, Formaggio Kitchen). Beginning at 9 a.m. most days, it now serves breakfast, lunch, and dessert all day—from cups of Commonwealth Cold Brew and egg sandwiches on Pain D’Avignon brioche; to house-baked focaccia sandwiches like chicken salad with cranberries; rosemary ham; and the vegetarian Mae Day with almond romesco, roasted veggies, and feta. There are also green salads, and snacks, like brown-butter chocolate-chip blondie bars, plus bottled soft drinks to-go. Once you’ve made your dining choices, simply head to the beach wall at Brant Rock Beach, or travel just slightly further to Green Harbor, which offers prime sailboat scenery from its super-long jetty.
Nightshade Noodle Bar’s pop-up roots are serving the small team well for their pandemic pivot: The downtown Lynn bistro is temporarily a takeout joint, with a walk-up window on Exchange Street dishing out New England beach shack fare with Viet-Cajun accents. Think: a lemongrass-Cajun-butter lobster roll and seasonal banh mi sandwiches; light and crispy fried clams with coconut-ranch and tangy tamarind dips; crunchy fresh papaya salad; and spicy shellfish sold by the pound. The beach menu is specifically designed to be taken to-go to nearby Nahant Beach, a glorious stretch of shoreline along a causeway with Boston skyline views opposite the Atlantic Ocean. The Nahant parking lot can be stressful on sunny Saturdays, and the parking fee is waived at 6 p.m.—so why wouldn’t you opt for a weeknight picnic there?

Avoid the weekend crowds lining up for takeout at North Shore Kelly’s Roast Beef by visiting Larry J’s BBQ Cafe—a comparatively unsung gem. The Revere beachfront location of pitmaster Larry Jimerson’s smokehouse specializes in slow-smoked brisket, sliced tender-thin and served with a choice of sauces, including traditional Texas-style, or Jamaican Jerk; though pork ribs and chicken wings would also make for finger-lickin’ picnic fare. Larry J’s proximity to America’s first public beach can’t be beat—but if you’re looking for a more less-tourist spot, travel to rocky, secluded Winthrop Beach.A pint of handmade pistachio gelato from Fox & the Knife is the perfect way to wind down a walk along Dorchester Bay. / Photo courtesy of Fox & the Knife
Celebrating over 40 years of feasting, McGuire’s Irish Pub is truly an Irish restaurant you can’t miss when visiting Destin. From a pepper jack cheesesteak burger to a nacho steak burger, McGuire’s has a burger for everyone. When you pick up your order, make sure you bring a signed dollar to staple onto the wall.
For everything else the Emerald Coast has to offer, be sure to request access to our complimentary 30A Vacation Guide! It’s full of the best shopping, things to do, and more!Perfect Pig is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. You really can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. Since we are talking about dinner, I’ll share some of our go-to’s from Perfect Pig. We always get the cheeseboard and smoked tuna dip. These are great to snack on when you have a large group. The bacon caesar salad with shrimp is the perfect dinner if you want something light and fresh. Perfect Pig is known for its barbeque, so we suggest getting the smoke Dr. Pepper-braised short ribs.The Adagio, San Remo, or Villa Coyaba are home to the perfect spots to enjoy your take-out dinner with a view of the Gulf. When it’s not mealtime, you’ll get to enjoy a collection of amenities including private pools, gyms, and outdoor dining areas. All of our properties sit on the pristine shores of 30A, so the distance from your front door to the sand is only a few steps.Looking for sushi? Not only does Harbor Docks have some of the freshest seafood around, but they also have some of the best sushi. I’ll try to pick my top three, but honestly, all the sushi is so good. If you are looking for something with a little spice, the Big Papi is the way to go. For a full-cooked roll, the Backdown with a side of eel sauce is amazing. The Philly is a classic roll that is also a fan favorite. If sushi isn’t your style, the grilled catch of the day or stuffed shrimp are both fresh and delicious.
For a more casual dinner option, Pizza by the Sea has something for everyone. One of my family’s favorite things to do is pick up a pizza or two and head to the beach for a sunset picnic. The quadruple bypass is a fan favorite, but for a lighter option, the Yum Bowls are definitely yummy!
Voted the best waterfront dining, Vue on 30A offers takeout, so you can enjoy the sunset from your private balcony. The crab cake salad is another light option for you to enjoy. Our hands-down favorite thing to get on the menu is the shrimp and scallops. The seafood is always fresh, so you know you are getting a true Gulf coast meal.
