Floating down a river in a tube is one of the most popular summer activities in Minnesota. It's so relaxing, you get to soak in some sun, and you have zero cares in the world while you're floating down the river of your choice. Thankfully, there are a good number of places near Rochester, Minnesota where you can rent equipment to spend a day relaxing on the river.

I also love grabbing a tube and floating down the river in the summer. Actually, for my bachelorette party 3 years ago I requested we go tubing and it was so fun! There were tons of snacks and adult beverages. That's one of the fun parts about tubing, right? Munching on snacks and drinking your beverage of choice, all while spending time with good company.
