This is a MUST DO if you're ever in the San Antonio area. You put some beers in a floatable cooler, plop yourself in a rental tube, then float down the river with 100 or so of your new best friends until you get to your pickup point. Then they throw you and your tube in the back of a bus and take you back to your car.A map of the local area known for it's river float trips. Not sure how much longer we will need to stay here. Perhaps once the remain in place is lifted the tube rental places will reopen.
We are a short drive to the town or Gruene. River Road is the scenic drive and 306 is the direct route to Sattler where we would probably begin our float.
People who live on the river sell drinks on the shore. You float over to them, give them a buck or two, and they give you a little cup of margarita, then you float off. The whole thing is very casual and informal, certainly none of our temporary bartenders have a license or anything so bureaucratic as that.
It is as Texas as Texas gets and I hope we have the opportunity to do it while we're here.
