One of the best places to go tubing anywhere in the United States is the Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake, Texas.  Float trips include some of the best whitewater rapids on the Guadalupe, known as Devil’s Playground Rapids, as well as Bad Rock Rapids. Or take the long trip through the chutes. There is also great fishing if you want to do that as well.
