Celebrate Family Fun Month at Your Islands

In addition to being the month that marks the return to school for local students, teachers and administrators, August also heralds the observation of Family Fun Month. As a lakeside destination dedicated to being “Your Islands,” Lanier Islands strives to be Family Fun Central – no matter the time of year! Here are just a handful of delightful distractions you’ll find here to help ward off the back-to-school blues and illustrate that there’s still plenty of family fun to be had…


  • LanierWorld: Lanier Islands’ beach, boardwalk and entertainment district, LanierWorld is host to more than a dozen rides, slides and attractions including everything from the rocking waves of our WildWaves pool to the high thrills excitement of waterslides like The Intimidator and Triple Threat. There’s also an aquatic obstacle course, a zipline over the lake, beach volleyball, paddleboards and kayaks for rent, foam parties, full-length feature films on our 5-story high “dive-in” movie screen – the HD Spectacular Screen, an 18-hole miniature golf course in the shade, a slew of eateries and watering holes, and jam-packed calendar of events… not to mention a half-mile stretch of white sand beach for castle-building and sunbathing. Fun in the sun reigns supreme here!
  • Harbor Landing: Boasting pontoon boats, tubes, water skis and fishing equipment for rent, Harbor Landing is your go-to spot for family fun. Explore the 38,000 stunning surface acres that make up our lake, strap on some water skis, climb into a tube or drop your fishing line in the water to see what happens next!
