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

Most of the rivers in Alaska have dangerous currents and are icy cold, not exactly the type you want to float in. But in the Interior, the Chena River runs right through the middle of Fairbanks and offers the residents a fairly safe way to enjoy the water in the legendary hot summer months. This lazy river is way more fun than a water park as you get to float through town and see the forested river banks and the friendly ducks. Enjoy a sunny day floating on Alaska’s lazy river, the lower Chena through Fairbanks.
