The Chesapeake Boathouse is a stunning feat of architecture on the banks of the Oklahoma River. Designed to look like a rowing shell, the translucent building appears to float on the river at dusk. The Boathouse offers community members an opportunity to row on the river. For a modest annual fee, residents can form teams and have access to the Boathouse’s state-of-the art equipment, including the $40,000 boats. If you’re visiting, check the schedule for races—in addition to various local amateur events, the 2010 American Collegiate Rowing Association Championships were held at the Chesapeake Boathouse. Even if there’s nothing scheduled, though, it’s worth the trip to see the river and the building.
