Green River Cove Tubing

Our first annual Green River Cove tubing trip was this past weekend! If you haven't tubed The Green River Cove before, you've been missing out. Located in Saluda, NC, the Green River Cove is known for "the best tubing in the South," has several thrilling rapids, is full of rainbow trout and wildlife, and is set back in the most beautiful mountain scenery. 

The trip was definitely a success! See for yourself...

Once we arrived, we parked and rode the shuttle bus up to the top of the river and purchased tubes for $9/each. Is that a deal or what?!

Tubes, check. Coolers, check. SPF 70, check. Fun friends, check! 
 
  The river is 3 miles long, and took approximately 2.5 hours to complete.
{My new favorite beer - so delicious!}
Our cooler rode down the river with us in a toddler tube.

The trip was so fun that a "second annual" is definitely in store for next summer.

  19. My fiancé and I are headed up to Saluda for the fourth! Found this place online and was a little sceptical of the "no alcoholic beverages" section on the website! I must know how did you sneak in your lime-a-ritas??? Did they just allow you to bring your cooler??
