One of the best ways to enjoy The Peach State on a hot summer day is to seek out a place to dip your toes in the water. From waterfalls to natural pools and coastal beaches, there's no shortage of cool oases to explore. Many rivers also flow through the state, and this Georgia river tubing Groupon deal will take you on an adventure that not only cools you off but also keeps things affordable.
A whole day to escape the daily grind and just float downstream sounds like an absolute dream. Each five to eight-hour-long tube rental usually costs $15 per person, which would run you and boo $30 total.
But to make this spot even better, Groupon is coming in clutch with the deals because you and the person of your choice can tube for just $16 total, which is almost half off the original price. And if you're able to snag the deal today, July 27, you can get an extra discount for a couple's tubing escape for only $13.94.
They're also offering water tubing discounts for parties of three, four, and six. So you can make this an outing for your entire crew if you wanted to.
There's a shuttle service that'll take you from the parking lot to the beginning of the river as well, so you don't have to worry about hitching a ride to your car after your river adventure.
The shuttle service is an extra $3 per person, but it saves you the hassle of getting yourself back up-stream.
Small personal zip coolers are allowed, so you don't need to worry about starving while on your adventure. As long as you can fit it in your tube with you, you're good to go.
Just remember, no glass or separate cooler tubes.
This affordable day trip is only about an hour and 20-minutes from Atlanta. Sounds like you just found the perfect excuse to clear out your schedule and take a ride on the river one weekend before the summer ends.
