Directions by Water

Home Tour “Direction By Water” begin at Hales Ford Bridge and provide a suggested sequential route to the Homes.  All of this year’s Tour Homes are located below Hales Ford Bridge and along the lower portion of the Backwater River.  Each dock is marked with a large, orange Charity Home Tour flag.  Note that the Homes retain their “Numbers” from the map and by-land directions.  Bring along a lake map, hydration, snacks, sunscreen and a fully-charged cell phone.  Boaters are reminded to wear properly-sized life jackets or have them readily accessible.  Allow extra time to wait for docking space, and look for signs at some Homes where Passenger Drop-Off is available.   Always exercise caution when entering and exiting your boat.
