Outdoor Adventures: Stand Up Paddle Boarding At Sweetwater Creek: Our next stop in a week of outdoor adventures is a place where walking on water is possible -- well, sort of. Sweetwater Creek State Park is located just east of Atlanta, and contains the ruins of the New Manchester Manufacturing Company which burned during the Civil War. The park also features a reservoir, which is popular for fishing and also for recreation. The park rents fishing boats, canoes, kayaks, and pedal boats. And people wanting to try out stand up paddle boards (or SUPs) -- on which a person stands and uses a paddle to move -- can do it there.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken has wanted to try a stand up paddle board for awhile, and finally got the chance by visiting Sweetwater Creek State Park. For more information click here.
