7) Blue Springs 

7450 NE 60th Street, High Springs, 386-454-1369
Distance: About 2 hours and 15 minutes from Orlando

There might not be a tube run for you to float down in Blue Springs, but who says that’s the only way to relax in a tube? You can still float around the main swimming hole, as well as the other small springs in the park. It’s still a great way to cool off during the summer. You can bring your own tubes or rent them out for $7.

8) Coldwater Creek 

8974 Tomahawk Landing Rd, Milton, 850-623-6197
Distance: About 6 hours from Orlando

Adventures Unlimited gives you the opportunity to tube down 4 miles of Coldwater Creek. New waves of people depart on the trip every hour from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tubes start at $20 per person, and you can even get your cooler its own tube for $10. This could prove to be a smart choice, since you’re going to want to rehydrate at some point during your 4-hour journey.
