White water rafting
You can go white water rafting a lot of places, but there’s nothing like doing it in Georgia. Take your pick from floating against the Ocoee River in northern Georgia or numerous spots along the 430-mile-long Chattahoochee River, a river starting at the Blue Ridge Mountains and crossing through Atlanta, which Georgians affectionately call The Hooch. For a wealth of floating options, go with Shoot the Hooch in Roswell, smack dab on the river, where your mode of transport can be a raft, tube, canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard. If you want a more intense experience, head to Columbus instead, where Whitewater Express will safely guide you through Class IV rapids. Though only one-fourth the length, the Ocoee offers similar Class III and IV thrills, so best to visit it with the experts at Ocoee Rafting, the body’s oldest rafting guides, with six Georgia locations.
