"Such a lovely gem"

You guessed it right, the Chattahoochee area surrounds the Chattahoochee River. This is personally one of my favorite areas to visit, especially in the spring and summertime. This green space is home to the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area; which includes several different parks, rivers and trails. My personal favorite is the Island Ford. Not too long ago, I was visiting this place a good 2 to 3 times a week, and those $3 park fees really started to stack up. I had a nice collection of those little papers with the holes punched out (that verified the different days that I had visited) stashed around my car. Eventually, I ended up purchasing the annual pass for only $25, which really helped me save a bit.

This is the perfect area for hiking because you get to see so much nature along the way. Hiking paths trail though wooded patches and stream along-side the “Hooch” to give you a one-of-a-kind experience. On many occasions, you’ll see families of geese floating on the river. You might also see fly fishers, fully suited, waving their lines about- trying to see what they can catch.

This area is really nice for dog owners as well. On any given day, you’ll see people out jogging with their pets close-by. Parents will also be attracted to the Chattahoochee, because kids just love playing in the river, collecting rocks. If you are in Atlanta, you have to check out this area. I can’t tell you how many friends I have, who have never been to this place. There’s no excuse to miss out on something so beautiful. So, get out... and enjoy!
