Enjoy LanierWorld over Labor Day Weekend with the 2-Day Family Fun Package!

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Before the end of the LanierWorld season here at Lake Lanier Islands, we want to make sure that your and your family have a chance to enjoy all the water slides, rides, wave pool and everything else we have to offer!

Our current special package we’re offering is the 2-Day Family Fun Package, which includes:

  • 12 daily tickets to LanierWorld
  • 2-night stay at Legacy Lodge
  • 2-days of breakfast for 4 at Windows Restaurant, inside Legacy Lodge

2-Day Family Fun Package: $239/night

So, check-in at the Lodge on Saturday, grab your tickets to LanierWorld and enjoy the day at our water park. Spend the day at the park and your evening lakeside at Gianni’s Italian Bistro & Pizzeria or at Sunset Cove Cafe. Head back to the room after a day of fun, sleep in lush comfort, then wake up to a wonderful breakfast at our sun-filled dining room, Windows. Then, it’s time to get the kids ready, head back to LanierWorld, and do it all over again. The package includes enough tickets for 3 days of fun for a family of 4 at LanierWorld, so head over to the water park on Monday, or return for our final weekend September 8-9.

Also, be sure to check out our Labor Day weekend concerts at both Sunset Cove & Big Beach AND our fireworks display on Sunday night.

If you’re looking to add the cherry on top of your Summer just before the beginning of Fall, then spend your Labor Day weekend with us at Lake Lanier Islands Resort.

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Banks & Shane played here at Lake Lanier Islands this past weekend. They had their full band backing them up at Peachtree Point Amphitheater played long into the night, often rousing fans from their seats and out onto the dance area in front of the stage. See a clip of the fans getting into the moment here:
