Rocket Homes states the following about Watertown, New York
With a name like Watertown, one would expect some kind of water features. What one may not expect is the world-renowned whitewater rafting and kayaking river that flows directly through the city. The Watertown stretch of the Black River offers some of the best whitewater spots – so good, the urban area has played host to the North American Freestyle Kayak Championship. Those who are a little less daring can still enjoy the rapids from observation areas and riverwalks set up along the water. Residents could also venture to nearby communities, where the waters are a little calmer and open for fishing and boating, or they can drive less than 15 miles east to Lake Ontario.
