Colorado has some awesome rivers to visit and soak in the summer rays, but have you ever tubed in a natural "Lazy River?" Here are five awesome places you can chill out on the river this summer.

5 Awesome Lazy Rivers In Colorado

As a kid, the only "Lazy River" I knew about was the one at Water World in Federal Heights, Colorado. Ever been? It's always the one thing I have to do when we go to "America's Biggest Water Park." After learning about some of the amazing natural lazy rivers around Colorado, I know I've been missing out big time and don't want you to do the same. Here are five awesome Colorado Lazy Rivers chose by I'm From Denver.

Clear Creek Whitewater Park In Golden, Colorado

Clear Creek Whitewater has been a state favorite since 1998 and is one of Colorado's perfect places to tube, kayak, canoe, or just splash around in the water.

San Juan River, Pagosa Outside, in Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Whether you want to tube or go wild in a raft, adventures at Pagosa Outdoors await in Pagosa Springs. This looks like an absolute blast!

Boulder Creek in Boulder, Colorado

Probably the closest option on I'm From Denver's Top 5 to NoCo is Boulder Creek in Boulder, Colorado. The video below looks like an absolute blast!

Yampa River in Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Rounding out the Top 5 is Yumpa River in Steamboat, and it looks like another amazing time! Clearly, I've not even scratched the surface of fun things to do in Colorado, even though I've lived here all my life. I didn't decide on this Top 5 but I feel like Cache la Poudre River in Fort Collins got snubbed. Any others you'd recommend? Email and educate me.
