Cool idea: Florida’s best river for tubing, the Ichetucknee

All those “lazy river” water attractions at hotels and parks are just trying to recreate the exhilarating experience of tubing the Ichetucknee River in north central Florida. Try the real thing, where you’ll float past pristine cypress forests and look into water so clear you can see a pebble on the river’s bottom through six or seven feet of water.

Biscayne Bay is a boater’s paradise, and that includes those with kayaks and canoes. These quiet paddlers can explore bird rookeries. A Barry University professor has captured close-up photos of many birds during her paddles.
