There’s Nothing Better Than Denver’s Natural Lazy River On A Summer’s Day

The kids are out of school and the last freeze of the season is (hopefully) behind us, which means it is time to begin planning for an epic summer! If cooling off with some gentle waves is on your agenda, don’t settle for the man-made lazy river at Water World; check out this Denver-area all-natural lazy river that will make your summer epic:

Located less than an hour from the heart of Denver lies the gentle waters of Boulder Creek, which was named one of the “10 best lazy rivers for tubing in the U.S.” by Men’s Journal (citing “This popular spot in Eben G. Fine Park has some faster-paced pockets and dips where you’ll need to hold on tight to those beer cans. But rocky embankments and crescents of sand provide ample space for a time-out in the sun.”)! Featuring nearly 32 miles of cool and clear water, Boulder Creek is THE place to be this summer not just for tubing, but also for tanning, biking, and even kayaking. Don’t own a tube? No problem, as several shops around the creek (and town) offer daily rentals at a low price.
