This place is very pretty, and the water is good and cold. There's also endless possibilities of what you can do. It's heavily visited by both locals and tourists. I have been here many times and I look forward to going back.

This gorgeous river runs right thru Helen, GA and we had the perfect view from our hotel room patio. Unfortunately it is quite cold here this weekend so we were not blue to get in or go tubing but I am sure it would be fabulous.

The river was flowing with mighty power due to the recent rain and flooding. It would have been a great time to tube or kayak. Kayaks were on the river but no tubers because it was might cold.

With all the rains it was very high. Call ahead and check on the water level if you are planning on going tubing or canoeing.

Rafting the "Hooch" is so much fun in the summer. You pay $4.00 for a days worth of fun. Stay at the Riverbend Hotel and you can get out of the river, have lunch,, rest, get back in the water and finish out your journey.

Most tourists like to drive the main drag thru Helen and gawk at the tudor style buildings. They are missing out! Just two blocks north, along a quiet little byway that parallels the south edge of the Chattahoochee River there's a lovely little city park. It's clean, quiet, and a great place to sneak a bottle of wine and cheese... More

I did this over 20 years ago, it was fun and great for the kids and adults, the water is not deep anywhere, not a timed activity, take your time and relax

So beautiful this time of year. They have had a ton of rain so it was high and moving. I want to come back and go tubing next time when places are open ( probably spring/summer time). Lots of beautiful leaves on the trees along it too.

We wanted to go see the Chattahoochee River, just to say we did. Easy to find in Helen, it runs right through down town.
