Since the invention of inflation, prices for groceries have skyrocketed and rivers have become traversable. Enjoy the scenic side of economics with today's Groupon: for $10, you get an adult admission to an Illinois River rafting float trip at Arrowhead Resort in Tahlequah (a $22 value).

Arrowhead Resort allows rafters of all skill levels to go on a safe, sun-soaked drift down the idyllic Illinois River. Guests pile into the complimentary transport buses while an experienced guide briefs paddlers on safety rules and the intricacies of inland maritime law. Once on the river, groups of up to 10 float at their own pace for a 6-mile excursion down the tree-lined watery highway before landing downstream in the waiting backyard of the Arrowhead Resort. Guests should mind all laws and safety guidelines and make sure to wear sunscreen and shoes that are impervious to water’s cutting remarks.

Although not covered in the cost of today’s Groupon, Arrowhead Resort’s general store stocks plenty of groceries and provisions for furnishing a riverside picnic. In addition to victualing voyagers and weary travelers, the resort preserves the ancient culinary traditions of frontier river boatmen with the Illinois River’s only ice-cream fountain.

Arrowhead Resort

Jack Spears and his sons David and Austin want people to love the Illinois River as much as they do, so they placed their resort's expansive camping, RV, and cabin grounds on the bank in positions that allow boarders to appreciate the scenery year-round. In the summer, their General Store's ice-cream fountain pours nonstop as river-goers take a rest in the shop's shade. The resort boasts year-round security to preserve campers' gear and scare off loitering snowmen in the winter. The staff also doles out dry goods, supplies, and groceries to campers or families staying in the manors of Pine Valley Retreat throughout the year.
