Colorado River Rafting

Its funny to think that such an amazing recreational activity such as river rafting was first invented and used for military purposes. Now i'm sure there was someone before the British sailing company who sad on a log and rode down a river and enjoyed the splashes of water to the face, the intense current from the rapids and the uncertainty of getting down alive. The first actual "rubber river raft" was invented in the 19th century however.

Colorado river rafting has been enjoyed since the states inception to the union. With amazing rivers, views and now rafting companies, Colorado is one of the top places to go whitewater rafting in the country. If you have not had the chance to go down a raging river in a rubber tube with 7 other screaming friends, I would definitely put it on your things to do this summer!

There are plenty of places to go rafting in Colorado. The Breckenridge rafting area, the Royal Gorge rafting area, Estes Park and Durango are a few popular places to go. There are plenty of rafting websites out there to help you get informed on when, where and with who to go with.
