A river runs through Helen GA and it's gorgeous. Can't wait to return and float down it tubing. You can eat at a few restaurants that have river views or admire it from a bridge near the Castle Inn. Nice clean river--I saw no trash.

Beautiful river that snakes its way through Helen, Georgia. There are many places within town to get nice views, including parks and restaurants. Pretty cold to start, but you will get use to it pretty quickly. There are two different tubing companies that I am aware of and during the summer all you can see is lines of tubes floating... More

I try to explain this place back home in England and can't. So relaxed, with a beautiful surrounding. The whole town is just incredible

This river can be seen all around Helen, GA. We saw it at different areas, each time more beautiful than the last. Would love to visit it during the summer!

We were there in the winter but we noticed a fair amount of trash on the banks of the river. It is very popular for tubing, perhaps to a fault in the summer. There are stretches away from town that a more picturesque.

Tubing on the river is a great way to spend a summer afternoon. The river isn't very deep which makes is easy for the younger folks to navigate. You get to see Helen from a unique point of view
