The Georgia heat is no joke, and finding your way to a body of water during the summer is a must when temps start to soar. With the number of rivers that flow through the state, you're bound to find one unforgettable adventure that you'll want to float your worries away on. And this spot for river tubing in Georgia, Helen Tubing & Waterpark, is an affordable spot for a lazy river day.

While the waterpark section won't open until June 12, you can still have fun in the sun on the tubing run. The option to tube at Helen Tubing & Waterpark has reopened just in time for the summer season as of May 23.

You can find this spot about an hour and a half northeast of Atlanta in Helen. The experience will wind you down the Chattahoochee River, which stays approximately 50 degrees year-round, for about two to two and a half hours of peaceful, floating bliss.

Monday through Friday, you can take a trip down the river for just $10 — or $20 if you decide to go on the weekends. You can also bring your furry friend, but they'll have to pay the same price, so don't let them forget their doggy bag.

No outside flotation devices or kayaks are allowed here, but they'll provide you with a bright pink tube for your day on the river.

A pink bus will take you from the parking lot to the loading site at the beginning of the river, so you don't have to worry about hiking back to your car after a long rafting day.

However, due to COVID-19, bussing back to the starting point after your down-stream adventure will be limited to the driver of your vehicle for the time being.

The tubing spot recommends parking your car at the upper tubing area so the driver can then easily come to get you at the lower outpost.

This is one summer adventure that won't cost you a fortune but will provide a load of fun for everyone in your group.
