Anyone who’s lived on the lake will tell you there’s nothing quite like it. Not many things compare to the peace and tranquility found in having your morning coffee on the back deck while birds chirp happily overhead, squirrels dart playfully from tree to tree, and the sun casts it reflection over the water as it slowly rises over the lake. Then there’s that familiar tug you remember as a kid – the need to get outside and play the moment you hear a boat engine roar past for fear you might miss something exciting. Life on the lake offers a sense of timelessness, where lasting traditions are born and memories are shared.
Whether you’re prepared to invest in a lakefront property or just want a “taste” of the good life, a great place to start is an Atlanta Staycation at Lake Lanier Islands Resort.
Lake Lanier Islands offers an growing collection of fun pursuits for the whole family. With the recent addition of their take on a boardwalk-themed entertainment district LanierWorld, the resort took the concept of summer fun and multiplied it three-fold. Consisting of three districts, Family Fun Park, Big Beach, and Sunset Cove, the attraction offers scheduled events, live entertainment, Dive-in Movies, more than 12 waterslides and attractions, over half a mile of white sandy beaches, miniature golf, rides and games at the Carnival at Landlubber’s Cove, promenade shops, and much more! It’s like bringing a little bit of the Coast to land-locked Atlanta. In addition to LanierWorld, Lake Lanier Islands also offers boat rentals from Harbor Landing, horseback riding and bike rentals from the Equestrian Center, 18 holes of challenging golf on a beautiful lakeside course, rejuvenating spa services at Tranquility – The Spa, canopy tours, walking trails, dining events, wellness events, the list goes on and on
For a luxury stay in a hotel environment, Legacy Lodge & Conference Center is the top pick for accommodations. With its heavy timber and stone accents paired with lodge-inspired décor, you’ll feel as though you’ve just set foot in an Adirondack lodge. The rooms are all well-appointed, offering balconies with views of the lake or surrounding forest.
If you prefer a “home away from home” experience, you can choose from the luxury Legacy Villas nestled right on the shores of Lake Sidney Lanier or the New England-inspired LakeHouses at Legacy, featuring private decks overlooking the lake complete with an outdoor grill and Jacuzzi.
For those who enjoy roughing it, Lake Lanier Islands Campgrounds will prove the perfect fit for a delightfully economical way to experience life at the lake.
No matter how you choose to stay and play, whether a family expedition of 1,500 acres of land and 38,000 acres of water or a romantic getaway with someone special, the management and staff at Lake Lanier Islands Resort are prepared to help you plan the ideal Atlanta Staycation.
