Urban Exploration in Atlanta
From inside these urban parks and green spaces, you wouldn't know you were within driving distance of a major metropolitan area. Some are industrial spots taken back by residents and nature. They serve as places for locals to hike, run, kayak, or just spend the afternoon reading a book in the park.

Kayaking, Tubing, and Stand-Up Paddleboarding on the Chattahoochee River

Large arrow left

Get active on the Chattahoochee River with Shoot the Hooch, who run tubing, kayaking, rafting, and stand-up paddleboarding tours of the area every weekend. "Shooting the hooch," or tubing on the river, is a great way to spend a Saturday, particularly if you bring your own drinks. But remember, no glass allowed. Some trips are guided and others are self-led, but all include boat rentals, life jackets, and shuttle transportation. Children over 5 years are allowed on most trips, but all guests must be able to swim.
