3. Whitewater Rafting in the Chattooga





It’s one of the wildest and most beautiful whitewater rivers in the country. In fact, it’s been designated as “Wild and Scenic” by the U.S government, thus protecting it from development.

It flows freely through the Appalachian Mountains, and spans 180,000 acres across three states (Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, in case you were curious). The river also caters to different adventure thresholds. If your looking for something mild and scenic (section III of the river), you’ll have time to swim, sun or lunch along the way. Prefer something a little more intense? Conquer section IV of the river for an equally scenic, yet heart-pounding thrill ride. Either way, this Southeastern waterway is a “must do”.

There are a number of outfitters in the area. Try Wildwater Rafting or Southeastern Expeditions.
