Lake Lanier Islands Resort Now Pet-Friendly!

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Are you looking for a great place to bring your family on vacation? Your WHOLE family? Lake Lanier Islands Resort is now pet-friendly, so you don’t have to find a sitter for Fido! “Leave no pet behind” can be your new motto for finding great, affordable vacation spots this season!

We’ve got your pet-friendliest accommodations at Legacy Lodge, the LakeHouses at Legacy, and of course, our campgrounds at Shoal Creek, Chestnut Ridge, and Blue Ridge.

There are more than 20 miles of walking and hiking trails, full of gorgeous Georgia scenery and wildlife here at the Islands. Why not take your furry friend on a beautiful walk under cloudless blue skies? Or you could grab a couple life vests and head on out to Harbor Landing to rent a pontoon for a full day of fun on the Lake! Our Island Skimmer Pontoons and Standard Pontoons are pet-friendly, too! Treat your best friend to an exciting new experience. Your pooch pal will love seeing leaping fish, snapping turtles, gliding herons, geese and ducks, and even graceful deer on the shoreline. Wave your paws at the passing boats on your way back in to Harbor Landing, and at the end of the day, your mischievous mutt will sleep the best sleep he’s ever had.

There’s plenty to do here at Lake Lanier Islands, so why not bring your ENTIRE family out to play! Remember Lake Lanier the next time you’re looking for a pet-friendly destination!

Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) Week at LanierWorld!

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Monday, June 2nd – Sunday, June 8th
10 am – close everyday

DONATE a used smart device (iPhone, iTouch, Kindle Droid, etc.) and get into LanierWorld for FREE!

That’s right, we said FOR FREE!! What’s up? Why are we collecting used technology?

The Forsyth BYOT Benefit has started its second successful year of supporting the children and the BYOT technology initiative in the Forsyth County Schools. In their first year, 2013, they were able to deliver almost $30,000 to the schools and the county has already purchased 80 Kajeet SmartSpots that will allow that many families to have internet in their homes where it was previously missing. How awesome is that?!

In 2014, they’ve set their sights on a loftier goal and believe that the generous residents and companies of Forsyth County will again show the community how much it cares. We’re inviting you to check out this website, see what the Forsyth BYOT Benefit have done, and decide if you’d like to be a part of this very important effort. And get a little water park fun along the way.

Don’t have some older smart-tech to donate? Not to worry! You can also participate by using the coupon below to receive $5 0FF of LanierWorld daily admission price!

Print this off or show it on your phone!

Let’s do this awesome thing! It’s for the children!

FAQs:

Does the smart device have to work? NO. We will take any “smart” devices.

Are they getting donated to a charity? YES. They are being donated to a charity, the Forsyth BYOT Benefit.

Are they getting recycled? They will be recycled, to be used by a deserving student in Forsyth County.

What happens to all of my information on the used device? They will be electronically scrubbed of all info before that happens.

Do I have to bring the chargers/accessories? NO, but please bring them if you have them.
