Tips from locals
The Rainbow river is a crystal clear, spring fed river an hour west of Gainesville that's great for tubing or boating. Entry to the park is $2. Check out the park's website for information on tube rentals and shuttle.
Several kayak/canoe outfitters are in the area. The Rainbow River is a favorite. Some people even tube it, although I'd be terrified because of the alligators!
