Located on the beautiful Wakulla River on Hwy. 98, family owned T-n-T Hide-a-way has been providing river or coastal paddling rentals and tours for four decades. They offer kayak, canoe and stand up paddle board rentals, instructions, shuttles and fishing trips and guided eco-tours all led by certified professional guides. Make sure you check out their manatee observation tour, one of their most popular tours.
This backyard gives homeowners the chance to enjoy two of nature's elements: fire and water. Chairs are gathered round a natural gas-powered fire pit, while nearby water trickles down a waterfall and around a winding river.
A reminder that Atlanta environs can suddenly go from concrete jungle to tree-filled, natural oasis in a split second, this longtime area standard, Ray's on the River is an especially worthwhile stop in good weather (i.e. spring or fall) when you can dine on crab cakes, lobster mac and cheese, shrimp and grits and other high-end spins on comfort food with a relaxing view of the Chattahoochee River. Ray's is especially beloved as a buffet-style brunch option and while the prices are high and service can be uneven, for a special, scenic meal that takes in the city's natural beauty, it can be a worthwhile stop.
