Just 45 minutes north of Atlanta, Lake Lanier is the place to be for a summertime getaway. Whether you book a stay at the Lanier Islands accommodations, rent a lakehouse or stop by for the day, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Head to one of Lake Lanier’s many parks to grill out with friends, tan on the beach and take a dive into the water. If you want to get out on the water instead, rent a Jet Ski, kayak or paddleboard.
There’s also horseback riding, golf packages and camping for those who would like to stick to land.
