Outdoors: Tubing

  • Peek over the Craven Street bridge on any warm summer afternoon and you’re sure to see a flotilla of tubes dotting the French Broad River. Easily accessible from town, with put-ins and take-outs every half-mile or so, floating the French Broad can be a halfhour break from the heat or an all-day cruise down the slow-moving waters. River-side destinations like the Wedge Brewery and The Bywater provide even more reason to finish a summer day with a relaxing ride downstream. — D.S.
