A little bit about Lake Lanier, GA:
Nestled in the foothills of the Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains and nurtured by the Chattahoochee and Chestatee Rivers, Lake Sidney Lanier is named for Sidney Lanier, whose admiration of the area’s scenic beauty inspired him to compose his famous “Song of the Chattahoochee”.
Lake Lanier is one of America’s favorite lakes. With several million visitors annually enjoying its recreational facilities, it has been the most visited Corp of Engineers project in the nation.
One reason for for the lake’s popularity is its proximity to metropolitian Atlanta, Georgia. A well-developed road network surrounds Lake Lanier, with several highways crossing the main body. Visitors can enjoy the city of Atlanta and, in the space of a short drive, can lose themselves in the tranquility at Lake Lanier.
Stayed tuned for more upcoming kayak, canoe, SUP events and races for 2015 and beyond!
