Tubing in Georgia

May 30, 2019

Where is the best place to go tubing in Georgia?

Many visitors to the state may wonder about Georgia tubing adventures and exactly where the best opportunity to tube would be. While there are plenty of entry points for private Georgia rivers tours, the Chattahoochee River as a whole provides one of the most exciting experiences in the state. The Chattahoochee River is around 430 miles in length, which means that no matter where you are in the state, there are opportunities to hop right in and tube!

What else can I do besides tubing at Broad River?

There are plenty of things to do in Georgia at the Broad River that do not necessarily involve tubing. Many guests opt out of the tubing/kayaking adventure and tend to stick to more inland river adventures. Georgia horseback riding, for instance, would be a great way to enjoy the river, but stay dry along the edge. Planning a fishing trip along Broad River is another great way to enjoy the area and have an outdoor adventure. With plenty of trail systems along the river’s edge, hiking, too, has become a welcomed pastime for many visitors to the area. There are even a few locations where primitive camping along the river is encouraged!

Does Georgia have clean rivers? 

For guests to the Peach State wondering about the cleanliness of the water, have no fear. Georgia has 14 different river basins, all of which remain an exciting way to spend an afternoon. While some rivers may be more well maintained than others, residents and visitors alike rely on the Georgia river systems to stay cool during the warmer summer months. Georgia businesses and policy-makers understand the importance of clean, plentiful waterways which is why it is always a priority to maintain the integrity of the rivers in Georgia.
