Lake Lanier is the biggest show in town. Hiking trails in the surrounding Don Carter State Park, fishing and swimming round out the activities.

The best time to visit is in the late spring and early fall when the temperatures are still warm enough for swimming, but you don't have to deal with the thick summer crowds and the heat that push them to the lake.
