When summer days warm and the San Juan River slows, it's time to relax and float the day away through the heart of downtown Pagosa Springs!

The San Juan River water flow is measured in cubic feet per second. Whitewater rafting and kayaking conditions are prime when snow in the high country begins to melt each spring and flows exceed 600 cubic feet per second.

Tubing and floating the San Juan River becomes safe for the adventurous when river flows drop below 400 cubic feet per second. If you are looking for family-friendly floating, wait until the river flows are anywhere from 90 to 150 cubic feet per second. Anything lower and it becomes a rocky ordeal!

To make the most of your visit, several shops in downtown Pagosa Springs rent tubes, life jackets, and helmets - all the things you need to enjoy a day on the river.

As always, be sure to follow state and local regulations for being safe on the water and keep in mind, swimming in the river is at your own risk. Be safe and #justbehere

Walmart

When Sam Walton opened the doors to the first Walmart in 1962, his goal was to save people money so they can live better. Sam was a firm believer in listening to what his customers had to say. That tradition continues today. But now, it doesn’t have to end when you leave the store. Through Facebook, we’re able to talk to you, find out what’s on your mind and let you know what we’re up to. It’s just another way we’re working to give the millions of families who shop at Walmart more of what they love—ways to save money and live better.
