It’s easy to let your worries drift away when living in Asheville. When time comes for a breather simply head to the shores of the French Broad River for some Zen Tubing. Two convenient locations present one of a kind trips. Originating at 608 Riverside Drive, the Downtown Asheville launch sends groups alongside the region’s breweries and the River Arts District. The more scenic southern route at 1648 Brevard Road, sends folks ambling towards small islands and inlets perfect for picnics and swims.

Embrace the spirit of outdoor adventure while staying close to Asheville homes. It’s great to experience nature in a comfortable setting. Tubes are the utmost in rustic luxury. Build in backrests provide an extra element of support while closed bottoms keep things cozy. Tubes can also be attached to one another so everyone stays together. Bring your own beverages and snacks and rent a cooler float for a few dollars more.
