Lake Lanier Islands may be just the answer to cool off this season. Just 30 minutes north of Atlanta, the resort will remind you of anything but the city.
You may feel like you’re back at summer camp with all the activities at this outdoor retreat. Picture yourself relaxing on the resort’s sun-kissed shores, ziplining through the wooded landscape, or taking a sunset cruise down Lake Lanier’s waterway.
In the center of it all, the resort’s Legacy Lodge has everything you’ll need for a leisurely escape – from two restaurants onsite, to a heated outdoor saltwater pool, to golf cart rentals for your whole party. Recently renovated, the 214 guestrooms give a comforting welcome to long, sunny days out on the water.
If you find yourself feeling landlocked, you may need to add this Southern Living Hotel Collection destination to your summer calendar.
