Tell us: What’s your favorite kind of vacation? Is it backpacking through Europe, hiking atop scenic mountains? Or maybe it’s basking in the sun on a tropical beach with a piña colada in hand? Everyone has their own definition of how they relax.

For us? It’s doing nothing. You heard us: NOTHING. Every day in real life it’s always go go go, and to just be able to sit and chill for a bit would be a dream.

If you’re anything like us, you’ve got to head to the BSR Cable Park. A total bucket list activity, the park is located in Waco, Texas, and is home to what’s deemed the “longest lazy river in the world.”

At just under a mile, or 5,280 feet, the river is notably long, and takes a good long ride to get down the whole. Once you’re there, you can grab a tub, get in the water, and sit back as the gentle waves take you down stream.

Being that Texas can get so hot, a vast lazy river sounds awfully appealing. Plus, a whole mile of floating along the water—what could be better, especially alongside your friends and family?

In addition to the longest lazy river in the world, the BSR Cable park also features the “Royal Flush” water slide, which contains ramps that propel you through the air into the water. Nothing like another awesome way to cool off from that hot Texas sun!

Other amenities in the park include a sand volleyball court, wakeboarding lessons, a surf park, and many bars and restaurants—or you have the option to bring your own grill (and BYOB).

The price to get in the park are as low as $25 for an all-day pass. For access to both the river and slide, tickets will run you just $10 more. Live in the Waco area and want to make it a habit of going? They also offer annual season passes!
