Rollin' on the Redneck River

Rednecks tend to be attracted to large bodies of water. Don’t believe us? How else to explain the “Redneck Riviera” spanning the area from Mobile, Alabama, to the Emerald Coast near Apalachicola, Florida?

Though we live in the desert, that doesn’t mean our state is running a ’neck deficit. Oh, no. Besides Cabela’s and your local Wal-Mart, one of the best chances to find said peoples is during a day of Salt River Tubing, a distinctly Phoenix-area attraction that recently reopened for the summer season. In addition to being a prime location to empty beer cans, the Salt is friendly to anyone looking to have a good time.

An all-day pass, which includes tube rental and shuttle-bus service, costs $14.

May 3-Sept. 30, 9 a.m.-7 p.m., 2008
