Finding ways to cool off during your mountain getaway is simple here in the heart of North Georgia. The flourishing forest is beautiful with the accommodation of clean lakes and many water activities. Here is a roundup of the top five water activities you can try this summer to create new memories and help you beat the heat.
River Float for The Day
Cool down and regroup on a river float. You can take your whole family for some wind-down time and rent river rafts for as little as six dollars. The Chestatee River is only a short drive from Atlanta, so it’s easy to get to from the cabins. The river is on the tame side, so it’s an excellent option for a family with small kids and can accommodate larger groups.
Scuba Dive at the Quarry
Scuba diving at the quarry is a fun activity if you’re up for a real adventure. This unique, unforgettable experience is affordable and safe, featuring dives from 20 feet up to 155 feet deep. Kraken Springs Waterpark accommodates families and groups and sits just north of Atlanta, making it a quick drive from the cabins. The waters can be chilly, so consider a dry suit.
Paddle Board Yoga
There is yoga in a studio and yoga with goats, but here in North Georgia, we have paddle board yoga. This unique experience is great for a bachelorette weekend or girls’ getaway and combines water play with peaceful rejuvenation. You can put your skills to the test on a paddle board and stretch, breathe, and relax. The good news is if you fall, you’re safe in the water.
Chattooga River Rafting
One of the most popular water activities is rafting down the Chattooga River. Not only is the Chattooga River North Georgia’s most visited destination, but it is world-famous for its whitewater rafting and thrilling rapids. There are places to kayak in calm waters, but traditionally, the rafting experience makes Chattooga fun.
Boating on the Lake
Boating on Lake Rabun is a water activity for those who love to be on the water but don’t necessarily need to be in it. Lake Rabun is in North Georgia near the Tallulah River and offers breathtaking landscape views and some of the area’s most spectacular properties. Spend some time cruising down the water this summer and enjoying all the area has to offer.
