There are many unique things to do in Texas during the summer months. You can go ziplining, to an amusement park, to the mountains, the beach, bike trails, and horseback riding, the activities are nearly endless.

In Central Texas, there is a unique activity that you can be a part of if you're an adventurous person - lighted floating glow tours. This stunning activity involves you floating or paddling around a river in a crystal-clear kayak. Your kayak illuminates the water below you with LED lights so you can see the aquatic life below as you're floating above it all.

While you may have floated the Guadalupe River or the San Marcos River in San Marcos or the Comal River in New Braunfels before in those black rubber tubes with a cooler full of the beverages and snacks of your choice just enjoying the cool spring-fed river this experience is totally different. You can still float the day away bonding with your buddies and experiencing it in a whole new way at night.

Several different outfitters in the Central Texas area offer a unique experience for anyone willing to man a paddle in a lighted kayak at night. It's not very often that you can check out the aquatic life below you as you gently float down the clear waters of the San Marcos River at night. As you paddle down the river you'll see plenty of fish and plant life and at the same time on a clear night you'll check out the amazing stars and you just might see some wildlife along the banks of the river.

This is a unique experience that many have written rave reviews about and they suggest it for anyone and many of them have plans on returning and doing it again. Some did say though come prepared for a workout because there is some work involved in paddling your lighted LED crystal kayak down the river.

This unique experience can also be found on the Texas Gulf Coast in select cities too. So if you've floated the river before and you're looking for a new experience, this could be the thing you're looking to do this summer, or any time of the year.
