Try canoeing on the Stångå, a river that runs through Vimmerby in a southerly direction towards Storebro, where it turns and continues to the north through the lakes Krön and Juttern. The route is very popular.
You can rent a canoe at Kröngården or Pippi's Hotel. Bring a tent and spend the night in one of the picnic and resting areas along the river. The picnic areas have toilets and refuse containers. Along the canoeing routes there are several sights well worth visiting.
At the Tourist Office you can get brochures with detailed descriptions of sleeping facilities, canoeing routes and sights.
