There’s No Better Way To Spend A Summer’s Day Than Tubing Along This Arizona River
Summer is knocking at the door, and we’re ready to answer. The Salt River officially opens up for tubing in less than two weeks, and it’s a warm weather outdoor attraction that deserves a spot on the top of your travel bucket list. There are even wild horses in the water! Come on, let’s float!
Nothing spells summertime quite like floating down the Salt River on a sunny afternoon. Opening day is Saturday, May 11, which is right around the corner!
Each tube rental includes a shuttle ride and free parking. If you'd rather bring a tube from home, the bus costs $14 per person.
Float trips range from 1.5 to 4 hours depending on which exit you take. With a flat fee of $17, you might as well stay in it for the long haul.
Perhaps even more exciting than the float itself is a chance to see the famous Salt River horses up close. They routinely traipse across the water, the sun reflecting off their glistening manes in the most majestic way possible.
The shuttle runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Children must be eight years or older + at least four feet tall, and glass containers are prohibited.
Address: 9200 North Bush Highway, Mesa, AZ 85215. Tube rental is available until 1 p.m. every day.
