That doesn’t sound true, right? Yes, according to their website, you can get unlimited access to Lanier Islands for $85 per year. Including the Magical Nights of Lights, but not LanierWorld.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who think winter camping on Lake Lanier sounds terrific and those who believe the words “winter” and “camping” should never be used in the same sentence.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) operates 32 day-parks in our area, including Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona. It is wise to invest in Corps of Engineers’ Annual Park Passes.
One of the best ways for park visitors to save money is to invest in an annual pass.
You can choose to cough up $5.00 per day per vehicle to enter USACE day-use areas or simply pay $40 for the entire year.
We are thankful for you and for the entire Lake Lanier community.
God bless America!
The bad news is Fish Tales closes for the winter on Sunday, November 19, 2017. The good news is they will reopen in time to take your Hunny Bunny there for Valentine’s Day.
The folks at Fish Tales have done their jobs well. The friendly service, food worth paying for, the scenery and a chance to eat outdoors (and have someone else do the dishes) make this a popular spot on Lake Lanier.
Way back on November 20, 1993 — When Meatloaf’s I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That) was the number one song in America — Lake Lanier Islands strung a few lights in scrawny trees and lit up 40 displays. From that frail beginning comes the 25th Annual Magical Nights of Lights at Lanier Islands!
The final Ella’s Run will be held by Right to Hike at 9 AM on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at the Gwinnett Environmental & Heritage Center. Bring your dogs!
The non-profit group Right to Hike (RTH) was formed after Meredith Hope Emerson — a vibrant and deeply loved young lady — lost her life in 2008. In Meredith’s honor, Right to Hike has held an annual 5k called “Ella’s Run.” (Ella was Meredith’s dog, who provided key clues to solving the mystery of Meredith’s death and put a serial murderer behind bars.)
For 10 years, my beloved friends at RTH have organized banquets, fun runs and Ella’s Run. No, it’s not morbid; it’s a celebration of Meredith’s life and yours. Proceeds from the events are used to purchase emergency phones placed on local trails to defend and protect our right to hike.
The final Ella’s Run will be held at 9 AM on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center.
Don Carter State Park is a delightful place to spend a few hours or weeks near where the Chattahoochee River becomes the northern part of Lake Lanier. Come and get acquainted with the park and its always friendly visitors at their 4th Annual Chattahoochee Mountain Music Festival.
The best volunteers in Georgia — the Friends of Don Carter State Park — have labored for weeks so that you will have a relaxing time enjoying an afternoon of live traditional mountain music on Saturday, October 21, 2017.
After church one beautiful Sunday afternoon, I rode my motorcycle toward the North Georgia “mountains.” As I approached Cleveland on Route 129 by the car dealerships, I realized that I forgot to eat lunch. Just about then, I saw Rib Country BBQ. It was a sign.
The gravel parking lot added a special thrill to parking my bike. The outside picnic tables looked inviting, but I chose to eat inside. The brightness and cleanliness of the restaurant was complemented by the friendliness of the staff. I chose … wisely.
Do you speak this language: “Who loves his little puppy dog? Who’s the cutest puppy dog!!!” If so, you and your best four-legged friends are invited to Bark in the Waterpark at LanierWorld on Saturday, October 7, 2017.
Never heard of Bark in the Waterpark at LanierWorld? Pffft. That’s because this is the first ever!
