What are you doing this summer? I have a couple of trips planned, myself. I’ll be hitting the coast a couple of times and seeing family and friends. It’s vacation season. But what about the in between weeks? How does one relax and have fun before and after vacation?
Well, how does floating down a river for a few hours sound? Grab some friends and/ or family, a pack or two of your favorite cold beverage, and hit up one of the amazing outfitters in the area- Three Rivers Outfitters, Dan River Adventures, or the Dan River Company. They have all you need for a tubing trip and will even chauffer you to your input and output areas.
If you’ve never tubed down the river, let me tell you it’s quite a unique experience. It’s exactly what it sounds like. You just float in a tube at a leisurely pace and allow yourself to let go of the work week and all its business. It’s really the perfect outing for all. The Dan flows at the perfect pace, the scenery is gorgeous, and the water is fine. In fact, the river is at a great level right now. Check out the current river conditions here: waterdata.usgs.gov
The only question now is- what are you waiting for? If you’re just past your summer vacation or still waiting for it to arrive, the Dan is waiting to take you away from the hustle and bustle on a long, slow ride to escape. It’s my kind of relaxation. And that’s my kind of Dan.
