Fall in love with Albany, Georgia, this Autumn
Posted on 9/12/2022 by Shelby Nichols
See how the South Georgia weather makes it easy to float the river and bike trails year-round.
Albany has over 20 miles of bike trails, choose between renting bikes at the Welcome Center or bring your own. Kayak Attack is always ready to put you on the Flint River, Kinchafoonee Creek or Lake Chehaw, enjoy the colors of fall as you visit the blue holes, stroll past beautiful cypress trees and bring a fishing rod for a chance at Shoal Bass.
Don't forget these must-visit fall stops for pure autumn fun.
