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.
