5 outdoor adventures to have in Atlanta this Summer

Atlanta There are lots of things to do outdoors in Atlanta, like drinking at bars with sweet patios, drinking at rooftop bars, etc. But, every once in a while, you should probably do something outside that doesn't involve drinking... unless you're shooting the Hooch (obviously), which is just one of the five outdoor adventures you should have while the weather is still awesome.

Shoot the Hooch
Grab a cooler and fill it with your favorite beverages (cans, of course) and enough sunscreen to cover you for a few hours in the Georgia sun. Oh, and you’ll need a dozen or so friends you can leisurely float down the Chattahoochee with in a giant inner tube chain. Oh, and one to keep the cooler from floating away. Continue Reading

Terminus Wake Park
This new Cartersville spot is the badass water park you didn’t know you needed. There's no need to rent a boat or cozy up to that weird Uncle who has a lake house when the boys at Terminus have an amazing setup with motorized, overhead tow lines and different levels of difficulty -- so you can putter around safely, or take your board straight off their sweet jumps.

Atlanta Bicycle Tour
Routes run through the heart of the city, along the BeltLine, or along our massive outdoor Living Walls art installations, and give you a chance to see parts you’d never see tooling around in your car. Plus, your selfies from this trip will shame every one of your followers.

Hike Stone Mountain
You can’t call yourself a true ATLien until you summit Georgia’s (much shorter) version of Everest. It may seem like a hassle at first, but Sunday mornings are a prime time for this. Summon whatever strength you have left in your alcohol-infused bones, get to the top, take a gorgeous bragging picture, and then hustle down so you can get your Boozy Brunch on.

Atlanta Running Tours
Don't own a bike? Then get a seasoned guide to take you on a three- or six-mile jaunt through ATL’s heart. Check out Centennial Olympic Park, CNN Center, the World of Coke, Piedmont Park, and even the High Museum of Art, albeit slightly more sweatily than you normally would.
