These 9 Lazy Rivers Are Perfect For A Hot Michigan Summer
Summertime in Michigan is filled with endless possibilities of how you can have fun outdoors.
When the sun comes out and you need to cool off it's time to find some water to relax in.
Michigan has over 11,000 lakes and ponds which give you lots of options when it comes to swimming or fishing.
Another one of my favorite things to do is get together with my friends and float down one of Michigan's many rivers.
Tubing In Michigan
Before all my friends started getting married and having families we would spend so many weekends during the summer tubing down rivers in Michigan.
We would all meet up at a certain spot and get ready to float down the river by applying lots of sunscreen.
We would then start inflating our tubes with air pumps.
After that, we would all get in the river and load up with essentials including (water, alcohol, lots of snacks, and even more sunscreen).
