Safe activities for fully vaccinated SU students
Warm weather has returned to the Delmarva Peninsula. Here are some fun and safe activities in the area for fully vaccinated students at Salisbury University. When making plans, review the Centers for Disease Control’s policies regarding fully vaccinated policies and consider the spread of COVID-19 in Salisbury.
The Cross Island Trail on Kent Island has various pathways including a five-mile route from Terrapin Nature Park to Ferry Point Park. Experienced bikers can travel a total of 28 miles from the northern to southern ends of the island with spectacular views of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge, Md. features two paved bike loops that are approximately four and seven miles in length. There are plenty of opportunities to explore the vivid habitats of animals on the Eastern Shore.
Senior Elizabeth Akers visited the Pocomoke River Canoe Company and had a wonderful afternoon with her cousins.
Customers can “paddle gently in one of our Old Town canoes or kayaks through shady caverns of foliage. Novice or experienced paddlers will find the flat water Pocomoke River a delight," according to the company's website.
“My two cousins and I rented three kayaks with a two-hour time limit. Our experience was amazing. After getting on the water, it was obvious that this was one of the best socially distanced activities,” said Akers.
For students looking for indoor adventures with friends, Salisbury’s escape room located on 116 North Division Street is perfect.
Friends and family members must work together to find clues, solve puzzles and unlock the mysteries of the room before time runs out. Escape rooms offer an opportunity to test your detective skills in a fun and safe environment.
These are only some of the many activities for fully vaccinated students at SU to enjoy. There are more destinations, activities and adventures to explore on the Eastern Shore.
