When it comes to lazy, I know a few things. My wife reminds me all the time that "you can't have lazy with an AZ." She's not wrong. Now Waco, Texas has a reason to boast about being lazy.

Being lazy is exactly how I like to spend my time at a water park. The slides are fun but the lazy river is where you'll find me floating the afternoon away and we have one of the best a short drive away.

Texas Water Parks

Hitting a water park, especially in Texas, is just about the perfect way to cool down. Fortunately Texas has a water park close by in just about any direction you just from just about any starting point. Summer Fun Water Park in Belton just down the road or you can head south into Austin for  Kalahari Resorts, Typhoon Texas, Schlitterbahn and Volente Beach Water Park for a fun filled day of splashing around.

Or head north into Waco for Hawaiian Falls or Waco Surf, formally The BSR Cable Park.

Waco Surf, Best Lazy River

Trips to Discover listed BSR Cable Park, now Waco Surf, in their "9 Best Lazy Rivers in Texas" list. Here's the complete 9 that made the list,

- Schlitterbahn Galveston
- Hawaiian Falls Water Park – Garland
- JW Marriott San Antonio Hill County Resort
- BSR Cable Park – Waco
- Great Wolf Lodge – Grapevine
- Hyatt Regency Hill Country and Spa – San Antonio
- Wet ‘n’ Wild Splashtown – Spring
- The Comal River – Comal Springs

When you think about it, there really is no need to travel that far to spend the day floating around a lazy river when we have one of the best in Texas just a short drive north to Waco.

The lazy river there is the longest in the world at 5,280 feet. Practically a mile of pure "lazy" relaxation.

It's calling my name, who's in?
