Go with the float.
If you enjoy drifting over rippling, clear water through a lush canopy of trees, tubing in Cherokee awaits. Nothing beats the thrill of rapids tickling your toes on a hot summer afternoon. Cherokee offers several tubing opportunities that send you twirling down the Tuckasegee and the Oconaluftee rivers, so pack your sunscreen and take a load off as you sink into your giant tube. Outdoor adventure has never been so relaxing. Stop in at the Cherokee visitor center to find out the best spots from which to launch.
