Want some advice on how to plan the perfect Summer Getaway but just can't seem to find the right place? Let Monterey guide you to the right spot!

We would like to welcome you to a special summer edition of our travel series from Monterey Boats. This week we are featuring the beautiful Lake Lanier in Buford, Georgia.

Located in the North Eastern part of Georgia, this summertime getaway is one of the best lake house style locations in the country.

A friendly historian would tell you that Lake Lanier was named after a famous poet, Sidney Lanier who was known for his adventure writing, music, and art. This 30,000 acre lake was created in 1956 by the completion of the Buford Dam to provide hydroelectricity, navigation, flood control and a water supply for Atlanta.

This boater's paradise is a hotspot for easy-going boaters, good people, and fun times. From our newly designed M Series to the 41 foot 400 sport yacht, you can plan on finding all types of Monterey owners on the water enjoying themselves.

You might want to try the Lake Lanier Island Resort for all your lodging needs. With a full list of amenities and activities, it's an ideal place for vacation seekers.

Lake Island Resort has a calendar full of things to do on their website. Each day there's something fun planned. From dancing and live music to dining and drinks, you will find yourself enjoying the moment with the ones who matter most. For those seeking a tranquil, rejuvenating experience, their spa offers an assortment of options for you and your spouse to relax while you let their professional staff melt away your stress.

Golf on your mind? Their award-winning golf course is recognized for its classic design, view, and a stellar playability that even the most avid golfer's can appreciate.

For all you outdoorsmen, their island resort isn't just for relaxation. You can plan your mornings hiking the trails, horseback riding, and after lunch you can look forward to a canopy tour with ziplining.

On your way to the lake, stop by Atlanta Marine. These guys offer our entire selection of Monterey models and will set you up with a perfect fit for any destination.
