Day Tripper: Try out a Watering Hole or two this weekend

September 6, 2016

Are you looking for an excuse to hop in your new Honda? Well we have quite the list for some outdoor adventure over the weekend, before it gets too cold! Take a look below at all the watering holes just outside of Birmingham we have found that will excite the family for a little getaway!

Martha’s Falls, “The Hippie Hole”

Little River Canyon, Fort Payne, Al

This little gem is tucked away at the Little River Canyon Preserve just outside of Gadsden, AL. Martha’s Falls “The Hippie Hole” has great swimming, rock climbing, waterfalls, and a series of cliffs that you can jump from right into the beautiful water! The weather is still hot and the water is nice and cool! You should go spend the day and pack up the family, a lunch and some blankets. It’s full of beautiful scenery and fun for all!

Turkey Creek Nature Preserve

Turkey Creek Nature Preserve is located in Pinson, AL just around 30 minutes outside of Birmingham. It’s free to get into the Preserve and there is a ranger on duty to keep everyone safe and informed on when the gates will be closing. The drive into Turkey Creek is beautiful as the trees over hang the road and you are free to pull off wherever you see fit to throw up camp for the day! Be sure to pack a few floats and float on down the river a little so you can see all this beautiful creek has to offer!

Cahaba River at Grants Mill Rd

Pack a float, a cooler, couple of towels and the family dog and enjoy your own little private beach at the Grants Mill Rd. entrance for the Cahaba River. There is even a rope swing just a short swim down-stream, perfect for your little adventurer’s. If you have a kayak or canoe, the Cahaba River Society welcomes that too! This little spot is  perfect for a family outing and is only a few minutes outside of Birmingham!

The weather is not getting any hotter and you will soon have to kiss your outdoor life goodbye as we roll into the Fall and Winter. So make the most of it and load up your family in your new Brannon Honda and catch some rays of sunshine and splash of fresh water!
