Spring Trip to the Mountains: Inexpensive Doesn’t Mean Skimping on Fun or Excitement

Starting to think about your springtime travel ideas can’t come soon enough after the long and cold winter. If you like mountain views, rambling rivers, and outdoor activities, check out our suggestions for the ultimate mountain spring adventure. While these ideas are inexpensive, the trip is still one that’s packed full of fun, excitement, and wonderful memories to be made.

The Coosawattee River Tubing Company: just a short hour drive north of Atlanta or an hour south of Chattanooga , you can enjoy a fun-filled 2 ½ hour inner tube float down the Coosawattee River . No better way to soak in the spring sun and sights than floating gently down the water in your own tube! If kayaking is more your speed, kayaks are available for rent. Both tubers and kayakers can enjoy the shuttle for return trips. Season opens on May 1st, and reservations are strongly recommended.

The Villas at Coosawattee River Resort: the resort offers cabins, villas, A-frames, and condos throughout the Appalachian Mountains and in some of the most breath-taking spots around the resort. The units vary from one to three bedroom but one aspect that every unit shares is comfort. Check out the different options such as fireplaces, hot tubs, and lofts for an accommodation that is perfect for your traveling entourage.

The Coosawattee River Resort Amenities: the resort offers not only accommodations in majestic locations around the resort but also some amazing resort amenities. Whether you need to entertain the kids, relax and rejuvenate yourself, or reconnect with nature, the resort has something for everyone. The kids will have a blast at the Teen Center , complete with arcade games, a snack bar, and pool while you can walk the suspension bridge over to the expansive park. If you want to relax and rejuvenate, visit the Recreation Center for a heated indoor pool, a fitness center, tennis, and putt putt golf. And reconnecting with nature has never been easier with fishing ponds, walking trails, picnic & cook-out facilities, and peaceful parks throughout the property.

The General Store at Eagle Mountain: step back in time to slower days of the old general mountain store where friends gather for special activities, every day needs, good food, good times, and arts and crafts. The General Store dishes up hearty breakfasts and the deli is a popular lunch time spot. Picturesque picnic tables outline the entrance of the store, giving the ideal opportunity to enjoy the spring sunshine with your sandwich. And if you need to pick up some grocery items for your villa or cabin, The General Store is your destination.

Spring into your next vacation to this resort that will have you transported from urban congestion to primitive wilderness in the blink of an eye!
