When thinking of Atlanta, chances are a thriving metropolis comes to mind. However, ancient flowing waters, also known as the Chattahoochee River, are living in the middle of this modern world.
Within the total 430 miles, there’s a beautiful stretch of 48 miles known as the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
Established on Aug. 15, 1978, by President Jimmy Carter, the area protects and preserves a series of historic sites located between Atlanta and Lake Sidney Lanier. Atlantans regularly use the area and its waters for recreational water activities, walking and hiking, fishing and more. Open daily sunrise to sunset.
