Float on the Saco River

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Saco River floating

Life can be hard, but floating is pretty easy. Should you find yourself in need of a fun and relaxing way to spend a summer’s day, grab an inner tube, raft or something else buoyant and hit the Saco River. All told, the mighty Saco is 136 miles long, so there are plenty places to put in in southwestern Maine. You can also take a tubing day trip with Saco Bound, which offers 3-  and 7-mile trips.
