Add This One Awesome Activity To Your Nebraska Summer Bucket List

Every Nebraskan knows that it’s not really summer until you get out on the water. Whether you’re boating, water skiing, swimming, or tubing, we’re all about having fun on our rivers and lakes. But there’s one uniquely Nebraskan river activity that you’ve got to try as soon as possible.

Depending on the river and the tour you choose, you could float in your tank for anywhere from two to six hours. The outfitters who supply your tank will shuttle you from the end of your tour back to your car, so you’ve got nothing to worry about other than sunscreen, beverages, and having an awesome time.
