The summer months are approaching, and that means it’s perfect weather for one of our favorite warm-weather activities! Tubing is the perfect activity for families or friends that love being on the water. It’s a great way to enjoy the beauty of the water and the river’s surroundings while sitting back and enjoying a nice, relaxing ride. What better way to enjoy water’s beauty than being on it? The answer – there is no better way! Here are 4 reasons to go tubing with your family and friends this 2020 season.
It’s not very restrictive of ages.
Most rivers that have more gentle and calm rapids can accompany children as young as two years old and even dogs! Tubing is a great way to enjoy bonding time with your family since everyone can participate. There is no better way to enjoy a family outing than being all together on the river.
It’s a very enjoyable outdoor activity.
After the cold winter and early spring months are behind us, the summer sun never fails to call us outdoors every day. Tubing is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors in the warm weather. Plus, when the summer days become excessively hot, there is no better place to be than on the river where the water can cool you off.
It doesn’t take skill.
The focus of tubing isn’t on how long you can stay standing or balanced or how long you can hold onto a raft before you get thrown off. Tubing is simply about sitting back and enjoying time for yourself or time with your friends and family. It isn’t a strenuous activity, so you can talk with the people around you while cruising down the river. However, you should always hang on tightly to your tube’s handles just in case the rapids get rough. You never know what mother nature can stir up!
It’s actually great exercise (but very relaxing).
Tubing can work your coordination, strength, and balance in a non-strenuous manner. It’s a great way to get active outdoors during the summer months. Getting in and out of the tube is a great exercise, and it challenges your balance and coordination. When cruising down the river, you will notice that you will tilt your body and pull the handles to stay with the rhythm of the water, and this is great exercise as well!
This summer, we invite you to let us host you and your party at Smoky Mountain River Rat’s tubing outpost in Townsend, Tennessee. Book your visit online to expedite the process of checking in and getting in the tubes! We look forward to seeing you this summer.
