Make for the Lake This Spring Break

For many people, it’s just not Spring Break without the sand! While some folks may be beach bound or boarding a cruise for one glorious week off from school or work, that’s just not the case for everyone. But… what if we told you that you could have all of that and MORE? In the event that you find yourself in landlocked Atlanta – rather than on some distant shore – Lanier Islands invites you, your friends and family to make for the lake this Spring Break. With a half mile of white sandy beach and sunny skies beckoning to you, just imagine the Spring Break selfies you could capture all right here at YOUR Islands.

 

We’re playing host to a weeklong Spring Break Celebration that includes games and inflatables on the beach, opportunities to rent kayaks and paddleboards to explore the lake, a DJ spinning tunes, nautical fare at Sunset Cove Beach Café & Club, appearances by Islands’ mascot Bucky the Beaver and more!

But why limit your Spring Break adventures to JUST Sunset Cove when the rest of our 1500-acre resort awaits!? Throughout the week, you can enjoy visits to our Stables where you can go on a trail ride and kids can take pony rides or have one-on-one time with animals in the petting zoo. Feeling a little more adventurous? Incorporate one of several zipline canopy tours throughout the Islands or “board your own cruise” by renting a pontoon boat at Harbor Landing to explore all 38,000 surface acres of Lake Lanier.
