We will have a blast floating down the river and then we will meet up for a bite of dinner in Helen before heading back to Atlanta. We’ll start the day at Cool River Tubing in Helen, Ga at 10:30 am. They will transport us to the “drop spot” on the river and we will float approximately 3.5 miles down the river. There is a spot with a cool natural slide. We will stop there and repeat the spot as many times as people want. When we reach the pull out point, our guides will pick us up and return us to office. There are changing rooms and showers available as well as a gift shop. You may bring beverages to drink on the river but be aware that glass and disposable containers are not allowed on the river. After tubing, we’ll journey to a restaurant in town for a bite and some refreshment.
