4 Ways to Stay Cool Outside in Northeast GA

So many ways to make a splash!

  1. Visit the "beach" at Sandy Creek Park... Athens' only beach!

  2. Hike a nearby waterfall! Refreshment awaits in the cool mountain waters just a little over an hour from the Athens area. Try out Toccoa Falls in Toccoa, Raven Cliff Falls in Dahlonega, or DeSoto Falls in Blairsville. For more options, check out this article from The Red & Black.

  3. Go to the lake! Lake Hartwell, Lake Oconee, Lake Lanier, and more are all around an hour's drive. Georgia is home to some of the best swimming holes in the south, so take advantage of them this summer.

  4. Go tubing in Helen, GA! Float your way down the Chattahoochee River passing through adorable downtown Helen, GA. With options for a 1-hour and a 2-hour float, this is one of the most relaxing experiences in North Georgia.
