3) K P Hole and the Rainbow River 

9435 SW 190th Avenue Rd, Dunnellon, 352-489-3055
Distance: About 1 hour and 30 minutes from Orlando

You may not be allowed to tube at the Rainbow River headsprings, but you are able to do some tubing from K P Hole. It takes you about 4 hours to complete, so make sure your whole day is planned around tubing. Once you’re done with the trip, there is a shuttle that will take you back up to your car for $7. You are able to bring your own tubes, but if you don’t have any, there is a joint package that includes the tube rental, park entrance plus tax, and the shuttle for $20.

4) Ginnie Springs 

5000 NE 60th Ave, High Springs, 386-454-7188
Distance: About 2 hours from Orlando

Enter the water at Devil’s Springs and enjoy a float down the Santa Fe river for an hour. The path downriver takes you back to Twin Springs, and getting back to your car will only take about 15 minutes walking. You can rent a tube from their store for $5.60 or you can bring your own. If your tubes are looking a little low on air, they also have free air stations.
