The Chattahoochee River is 430 miles long and it forms the southern half of the Alabama and Georgia border, as well as a portion of the Florida border. It is a tributary of the Apalachicola River, a relatively short river formed by the confluence of the Chattahoochee and Flint rivers and emptying from Florida into Apalachicola Bay in the Gulf of Mexico.

This is a float trip down the Chattahoochee that we did in kayaks and tubes near Roswell, Georgia. The river is busy in the summer months, so don’t expect a lot of privacy, but there are shuttle services on this route and it’s a nice way to spend a hot summer afternoon. In season, rentals are available at Azalea Park.
