Snow is falling somewhere. Stores are displaying Christmas trees. But, on Thursday, November 3, 2016, it’s 76 degrees and sunny in Gainesville. The weather has been hot for so long, Georgians long for cooler weather. Yes, that means it’s time for the return of Winter Adventure at Lanier Islands!
Lanier Islands will flip the switch on Friday, November 18, 2016, to illuminate the Magical Lights. The heart-warming Holiday Village will also be open for slides, carnival rides, holiday food and cool fun — no matter what the temperature might be.
The sprawling grounds at Lanier Islands are covered with every possible way to have fun. They offer pet-friendly accommodations, stunning suites, family-friendly ranch-style Lake Houses, rustic campsites and splendid villas.
After a perfect night, Lanier Islands awake to a multitude of experiences for your enjoyment and exhilaration. Play a round of golf on an award-winning course, gallop through the woods by horseback, zipline through the trees on a guided canopy tour, cruise across the lake in a private pontoon, or explore our variety of dining options onsite.
