Green River, North Carolina
After hiking and biking, and one too many gourmet farm-to-table meals in Asheville, this sit-back-and-relax day trip will be exactly what you need. You’ll intend to glide down the river for three miles, but the soothing stream and lush setting will lull you into staying on for six miles, at which point you’ll likely be out of beer (that’s best kept hidden). Bring snacks for the ride but save room for a pulled pork sandwich and side of mac ‘n’ cheese at nearby Green River Barbeque.
Rental: Green River Tubing is based in Saluda, 45 minutes from Asheville, and rents tubes for $9 per 3-mile trip and $14 for 6 miles. Rates include shuttle service, tube rental, and parking.
