Frio River, Texas
There’s a place about 80 miles outside of San Antonio, where there’s nothing but high limestone bluffs, crystal clear water, and tranquility amid giant cypress trees. The Frio River snakes its way southeast 47 miles through Texas and gives tubers the freedom to daydream in a Lucky Ol’ Sun stupor (courtesy Ranger Creek Brewing), uninterrupted by rowdy partygoers at the more popular Guadalupe River, 40 minutes from the Alamo.
Rental: Josh’s Frio River Outfitters offers regular tubes for $7/day, tubes with bottoms for $10/day and cooler tubes for $10/day, as well as shuttle service from its shop in Concan.
