1. Bear Paw Adventures and the Chipola River
What is it: Sometimes, the best things in life are absurd and over the top, the things that need to be seen to be believed: Bear Paw Adventures and the Chipola River are one such thing. Even though it’s an hour-long drive away from Tallahassee in the nearby city of Marianna, it’s a trek many Tallahasseeans have made time and again for the thrill only a three-and-a-half to four-hour river ride can provide.
Why go: Besides the fun of tubing or canoeing down the Chipola River, Bear Paw Adventures showcases Florida’s natural beauty through a totally immersive experience. After all, it is hard to check your phone while getting repeatedly splashed with water and navigating a lengthy body of water.
