The Boone area offers a wealth of opportunities for tubing down a spectacular mountain stream. There is no more relaxing way to spend a summer afternoon. Many of the same Boone Area outfitters who offer canoe and kayak paddling trips are equally focused on the great family fun to be had on a lower-tech tube! Some visitors, who bring their own tubes, choose to park a car at Todd Island Park then drive to Green Valley Community Park to put in their tubes for a fun, quick tubing excursion down the South Fork of the New River.
