Have you ever hopped in a river and made a day of twisting and turning along a watery path? Was it a lazy affair in an inner tube (perhaps with a floating cooler attached by rope)? Or were you going for the gold on some harsh rapids? Just for fun, here are five fantastic ways to float down a river…in case you get the hankering this summer. I’m feeling inspired for a road-trip already! Ready, set, FLOAT…
Above: White water raft the White Salmon River in Portland, Oregon
Life-jackets in the River of Xcaret in Riviera Maya, Mexico
Inner tube the Lihue Plantation canals in Kauai, Hawaii
Canoe the Buffalo River in Ponca, Arkansas
Man-made currents in the Waterbom Bali Waterpark in Bali, Indonesia
Which would you choose?
