What You'll Get
With gas prices skyrocketing, summer vacationers will turn to river rafting as an economical means of completing their long-planned California-to-Maine voyage. Today's Groupon repurposes the modern highway with a one-hour to four-hour tube float down the Guadalupe River from Whitewater Sports for $7 (up to a $15 value). If you redeem four or more Groupons at a time, you'll get a free cooler-tube rental, so get your three closest cousins and show up as a happy quartet.
While donuts and bagels are delicious morning treats, they simply can't support you like an inner tube can. After you park for free at the float starting point, you'll board the donuty vessel for an adventure of earth sights, sounds, smells, and gentle watery caresses. With river levels sitting high, you're guaranteed an abundant body of crisp water to ferry you down the river. As you float amid the big sky and shimmering water, you'll be closer to nature than you've been since your life form rose from the fertile soil and materialized on your mother figure's porch step. You can choose the route and length of your float, including an optional repeat performance of the first one-hour leg after an epic three-hour odyssey. When you've reached your endpoint, a Whitewater Sports shuttle will be waiting to transport you back to the parking and tube drop-off.
While river tubing is great for cooling fun on a hot summer day, it's also a clever means of evading that pesky paparazzo constantly lurking around one rosebush or another. Escape the flash of the camera and the hustle and bustle of city life and venture out of the city for a fun float along the river. Check river flow ahead of your adventure and call ahead to check on tube availability.
