Located right off of Interstate 75 near Atlanta, Sandy Springs has a lot to offer someone looking for a little adventure. Whether you are looking for a quick afternoon activity, or a day long stay, there is something for everyone in this Georgia town.

The Chattahoochee River runs right through Sandy Springs, and offers a myriad of activities for singles and families. The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area is a popular destination to park and start you adventure. Hiking the river and the surrounding trails are a great way to see all of the beautiful nature hidden away in Sandy Springs. The trout fishing is some of the best in the south, too. On any given day, fisherman can be seen wading knee deep into the river, casting across the waters. In the summer, rent a couple of tubes and float down the river with friends. It is a great, relaxing way to beat the Atlanta heat.

Sandy Springs activities are good for the whole family, pets included! Morgan Falls Overlook Park is a beautiful place to spend the afternoon with your crew. Not just another park, Morgan Falls is situated right on the river and has a public dock. Cast a line, hop in a boat, or just sit on the dock and watch the sunset. The kids will be busy for hours playing in the play area. Don’t forget lunch – Morgan Falls Overlook has a great picnic area, or you can enjoy a bite on the charming front porch style swings facing the water.
