Warm weather means only one thing: spending as much time as we can outdoors, soaking up the sun, and setting off on unforgettable adventures. For the perfect pairing, follow this Eastern Ohio day trip that will take you on a leisurely tube float with NTR Canoe Livery, before capping off your adventure with a taste-tantalizing meal at Ranchero’s Taqueria. It gets even better. You’ll only need a single tank of gas for your day out, and your drive time for this tubing in Ohio adventure is relatively minimal.

Google Maps’ lone route from NTR Canoe Livery in Bolivar to Ranchero’s Taqueria in Akron spans 38.5 miles and should take around 40 minutes. However, that’s not taking traffic into consideration. The route is a straight shot from south to north on Interstate 77.

It doesn’t get much better than tubing and tacos, but what if you’re not within easy driving distance of this epic day trip? You’re in luck. Check out these other unforgettable day trips in Ohio for a ton of fun.

What are the best lazy rivers for tubing in Ohio?

When Buckeye State residents start thinking about summer, one warm-weather activity really stands above the rest. Is there anything better than river tubing in Ohio during the dog days of summer? Our state has so many phenomenal natural lazy rivers -- and not just the Tuscarawas River featured in the above road trip! When summer in Ohio gets too hot and sticky to function, we love to pack up and head to Hocking Hills. Many people opt for kayak or canoe rentals along the Hocking River, but we've got a soft spot for tubing. Hocking Hills Adventures offers up kayaks, canoes, and tubing, so there's something for everyone here. Various trips are available, lasting anywhere from two to five hours. The outfitter is typically open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, depending on weather and water conditions. 

Speaking of which, Hocking Hills is home to some amazing waterfalls and caves, which make for a perfect respite from the heat and humidity of Ohio summers. You could spend days exploring the many wonders of this region in southeast Ohio. If you're looking for an amazing waterfall-cave twofer, the hike to Ash Cave is not only quick and easy, but it also leads to a beautiful waterfall and shaded grotto. The entirety of Hocking Hills is quite lush and forested, keeping hikers cool and comfortable even on the hottest dog days of summer in Ohio.
