You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. The natural beauty
    of Georgia and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water attract people from near and far. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Georgia are often more challenging than in other states, so better not
forget that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. This stretch is short so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come.
