Where is the best place to go tubing in Pennsylvania?

Regardless of where you live in the state, you’ll find plenty of places to go tubing in Pennsylvania. In addition to the Delaware River, Pennsylvanians can spend a day tubing on the Juanita River, the Clarion River, and the Stonycreek River. Outdoor adventure companies offer float trips that last anywhere from an hour to six hours or more. A 16-mile float trip, for example, takes approximately six hours.

What else can I do besides tubing at the Delaware River?

You’ll find plenty of things to do in Pennsylvania, including on and in the Delaware River. If you’re up for an adventure, try rafting, kayaking, or canoeing. Outdoor adventure companies provide everything you need for a safe and fun trip. Or, if you’d rather relax as the scenery passes you by, climb aboard a scenic Pennsylvania river tour for a charming boat ride along the Delaware. Fishing is also a popular activity on the river.

Does Pennsylvania have clean rivers?

Environmental groups have worked hard to help ensure the water in Pennsylvania’s rivers are clean, after they were once some of the most toxic in the United States. In fact, the Clarion River in Western Pennsylvania has been named The 2019 River of the Year, overcoming its reputation for once being the state’s most polluted body of water. The Clean Water Act also helps to ensure Pennsylvania’s rivers are clean.
