In south Texas, it's a given: When the temperatures reach over 100 degrees (sometimes as early as May!), it's time to grab a tube, load up your ice chest, and jump in the river. Usually, someone also brings a waterproof sound system to play authentic Texas music so the 2-6 hour floats down the river are relaxing and entertaining. Rockin' R River Rides rents tubes with or without bottoms. Their motto is "Remember our bottom will save your bottom." If you aren't ready to sit in a tube, try a '1 Man' raft or a '2 Man' raft. They look like inflatable kayaks. Also, they rent larger rafts for up to 6 people and your ice chest.
- Outdoor Activities: "With several colleges nearby, the Guadalupe River is a huge party on the weekends and much of the summer. Rockin' R advertises that weekdays and Sundays are family friendly so if you have young children, these are the best times."
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: There's no better way to enjoy the warm summer months in Texas than floating on the picturesque river.
