#2 – Climb

It’s family fun for ages 7 and up at this high-flying park. Of course, you’ll be clipped into a safety line at all times. On the “Crying the Blues” course, you’ll tackle 11 obstacles and a 125-foot zipline while 30 feet in the air. And more than a little balance is required as you move over hanging wooden blocks and surf the “Flying Kayak”!

#3 – Float

There’s only one home of the famous pink tubes, and there’s no better way to experience the Toccoa River than along this scenic 6-mile stretch. Ray, Gina and the tube crew will set you up with everything you need — from super-tough tubes (with bottoms) to shuttle service, changing rooms and clean restrooms! Ask about kayak and raft rentals, too.

#5 – Race

If it’s Saturday night in the South, it must be race night! This local 1/3-mile dirt track is home to sprint cars, mini stocks, monster trucks and more. Gates open at 5 p.m., hot laps are at 6:30 p.m. and racing starts at 7:00 p.m. All racing events are usually completed by 10:30 p.m. The food’s as hot as the racing, so come hungry! And remember to bring seat cushions and ear protection,
if needed.
