Perfect place to kayak. Water is so clear. It’s 72 degrees year round. It’s a spring fed fresh water river. Lots of people kayak and tube down the river. It’s a must do. Beautiful.

I took my 2 boys here and they had a blast. So much for them to do, hiking, beach, canoeing, etc. We stayed a few days and really got to relax.

While I loved tubing down Rainbow Springs, the fees seem rediculously high. My family of five had our own tubes, but paid $103 to float for a couple of hours. Give me a break!
