Only the strongest can withstand the Georgia heat, and let's face it - it breaks all of us at some point. If you're looking for a way to beat the heat without retreating from the sunshine all together, tubing is your best bet, and $10 River Tubing in Georgia should be your first choice.
This is the most affordable tubing experience you'll find in the Peach State. For only $10, you can experience a 2-hour ride down the Chattahoochee River. The river remains around 50 to 55 degrees year-round, so the coolness balances out with the climbing outdoor temperatures.
With two convenient meeting points in Duluth and Macon, there's no excuse not to come out. You'll park your car and climb aboard a shuttle, which will whisk you off to the river. And did we mention the parking and shuttles are free? The experience you get for how little you pay is unheard of.
If two hours of relaxation isn't enough for you, you can cruise down the river for four hours for $14. Life vests are provided for both trips.
Dogs are allowed on the river, so if your furry friend needs to unwind too, you can bring them! They'll sit in their own tube, which can connect to yours.
No glass is allowed on your ride, but you can bring some koozies and drinks (only if you properly dispose of them). You might also want to bring a cooler, music speaker, and snacks along the way. Depending on how you approach your day, it could turn into a floating party.
If you're lucky enough to come on the weekend, you'll find some empanadas waiting for you as your return from the river. Not Your Mama's Empanadas has authentic $3 chicken, beef, and guava empanadas for purchase.
$10 River Tubing kicks things off at 10 a.m. The last ride leaves at 4:30 p.m., but it's likely to sell out beforehand. Being timely that day is a must. They're closed Tuesday and Wednesday, so plan your trip there accordingly!
