Destination: Tallulah River Georgia
About this photo: When the temperatures are close to 100 degrees in the Atlanta area, just two and half hours away you can cool by this beautiful river located in the Chattahoochee National Forest close to Clayton, Georgia. You can go for the day or do what we do and camp in one of the three campgrounds located on the river. We love Tate Branch. It’s always at least 10 degrees cooler and you do not have the humidity. We can’t wait to get back up there.
