29 Apr Explore the Great Outdoors in Roswell, Georgia
Phones Down. Paddles Up.
Summer vacation time is nearly here, and that means the chance to reconnect with your loved ones. This is the time to savor each other, and truly allow yourself to detox from the distractions of everything on the internet. What better way to do that than surrounding yourself with the beauty of nature? It’s time to put the phones down and discover a myriad of fun things to do outdoors in Roswell, Georgia.
On the Water
Shoot the Hooch is a favorite in the Atlanta area and it is right in Roswell’s backyard. You can float in an inner tube, canoe, or kayak down the Chattahoochee River by renting the equipment from Shoot the Hooch. You can also bring your own equipment if you have it already. During the warm Georgia summers, it feels great to be in the crisp river water taking in the sights and sounds.
Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) is another great option to step into nature. If you are interested in the water but want more than just riding the current along the Chattahoochee River, you can sign up for one of their guided tours! This will still get you out on the river, but with someone who is going to fill you in on the wildlife that will be surrounding you. As you plan your visit to CNC, be sure to grab some food from any one of our local restaurants and have a picnic lunch on the grounds.
Off the Water
Not big on water sports? Discover nature and the great outdoors in Roswell by hiking some of our trails. A local favorite is to hike the Vickery Creek Trail. This hike showcases the beautiful Vickery Creek Waterfall. These trails are also dog friendly! If your pup likes water, they can even dip their paws in at the shore to cool off!
Roswell is a designated bike-friendly community. If biking is something you love, take on Big Creek Park to explore the mountain biking trails that link up to the Alpharetta Greenway. The trails offer rides for all levels, and some include dirt jumps and pump tracks.
