“Hot Day? Float down the lazy river! Located about 45 min south of Buda. Park and rent tubes and float down the natural springs river for about 2 hrs. When you get out there is a shuttle bus that takes you back to the parking lot. Great refreshing day. http://www.tubetexas.com/rivers/san-marcos-river.html ”
