This is billed as being the world’s longest (the website says ‘allegedly’) lazy river, which is nearly a mile long. You must purchase a Wedge waterslide pass to ride the lazy river, but that just increases the fun. You can also separately surf on a two-acre lake or try the wakeboarding cable park where overhead cables pull you around the water with no boat involved.
On a hot day, there's nowhere better to be than in a nice body of water, be it a manmade pool or a natural hot spring. The most relaxing experience of them all, however, is arguably a lazy river. And we're not talking about white water rapids out in the wild—we're talking fabricated rivers that let you effortlessly drift along a winding current in a tube, letting the gentle flow carry away your cares as you bask in the sun.
The best lazy rivers in the U.S. are a perfect choice whether you're seeking a quiet escape where you can be, quite literally, lazy or a fun-filled family outing. We've rounded up the best artificial, meandering streams from the mountains of Colorado to the glitz of Vegas to mega water parks across the country that pull out all the stops. Whichever lazy river you choose, get ready for a more engaging and rejuvenating way to enjoy the water.
