A rafting trip is a memory that lasts forever. Drive your kids up to the Tuckaseegee River in western North Caroline (just about three hours from Gwinnett) and the entire family – from four years old up – can have a safe, half-day adventure on a scenic float trip through several quaint mountain communities.

For your family”s adventure, choose from a wide variety of rafts, inflatable kayaks or tubes. Parents love this part of the river because it”s surprisingly warm if the younger ones get wet. Wear old tennis shoes or sandals, shorts and a t-shirt, or bathing suit. Other necessities: windbreakers or sweatshirts if it turns cool, hats or visors, sunscreen, and a water bottle for everyone in the family.

Affordable family float trips are self-guided or led by a guide for those who prefer extra help or attention. Plan your day ahead of time. Float trips launch from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and take about two to three hours including pre-trip briefing, river time and bus ride back to your car.
