How would you like to spend the day floating down a river without a care in the world this summer?

Summer will be here before you know it, and if you are looking for some fun (and relaxing) things to do, I think I have found the answer for you. Oh, and it's not too far from the Evansville area. It's called Awesome Lazy River, and it is just that...a lazy river that sounds awesome!

Awesome Lazy River

This lazy river adventure is located in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, which is right outside of Louisville. As the name implies, it is an awesome lazy river. While there, you will be able to can spend the day floating along the Salt River in an inner tube, soaking in the sun, and sipping on a nice cold (nonalcoholic) beverage. It's the definition of a relaxing vacation!

The average trip down the river is about 2 hours. Awesome Lazy River rents out single, double, and typhoon floats. They also have floats for your coolers so that you can bring drinks and snacks along for the float. If you wanted to, you can even bring your own float too.
