8 Lazy Rivers In Florida That Are Perfect For Tubing On A Summer’s Day

It’s no secret that Florida summers can be unbearably hot. This time of year, Floridians begin a season-long conquest for fun ways to get out of the house without melting into a puddle. Sure, swimming pools and water parks are fun, but nothing beats the beauty of Florida’s natural lazy rivers.

Because we have readers from other states, we want to give a warning that, yes, there are alligators living in every one of these places. They usually prefer to stay clear of these busy areas. Nonetheless, it’s always wise to stay alert and aware of your surroundings when exploring pretty much anywhere in Florida.

Tip: For longer trips, bring a floating cooler and rope to tie your floats together so you don’t get separated.
