Lanier Islands Promotions and Special Offers

Only one thing is better than spending time at Lanier Islands at one of their exciting venues and attractions.  That is spending less money by taking advantage of Lanier Islands promotions and special offers.

If you believe deceptive ads, you might fall for the line “The More You Spend the More You Save!”  Sorry, that’s just stupid.  The truth is “the more you save, the more you have to spend on other things you want!”

That’s what all the Lanier Islands promotions and special offers are all about: saving you money.  That way you’ll have more to spend at Lanier Islands … or on makeup, ballet lessons or chrome for your Harley.

You’ll find promotions and special offers on activities such as: weekend getaways, golf specials, boat rentals, beach parties, Lakeside Lights Spectacular, License to Chill & Snow Islands, lake cruises and dozens of other ideas all year long.

Legacy Lodge plays host to many favorite seasonal events. Join us for Valentine’s Dinner, Easter Brunch, Mother’s Day Brunch, Thanksgiving Dinner or Breakfast with Santa.
