Floating on a Rainbow

We had a great time leisurely floating down the Rainbow River! This river is fed by Rainbow Springs, so the water was crystal clear and cold. We brought our own tubes, but you can rent them at the county park along with life jackets if you need them. Be prepared for a 4 hour float down the river. It gets very deep in many areas, so if your children are not great swimmers, I recommend a life jacket. We brought along a cooler on a raft and some sun screen to reapply part of the way down. The bottom is a mixture of grass and sand. The girls had a great time watching the fish swim around under their tubes. You can buy a shuttle pass at the county park to catch a ride back to your car. We saved money by buying only one pass. I rode back and got the car and was back to pick everyone up in around 10 minutes. If you do decide to go, I recommend you arrive no later than 10:00 AM at the park as it does get crowded on a hot summer day. Also, be sure to wear a hat and shirt as the sun really beats down on the water.
