Thinking about a vacation to Lake Lanier this summer. May leave on a Friday morning from Pittsburgh and drive to Lake Lanier and stay 3 or 4 days then leave Tuesday or Wednesday and head to Charleston, SC for a few days then head back home Sunday morning. For now I am researching Lake Lanier. We will not be taking our boat but may look to rent one for a day or two. Any suggestions on places to stay or places to rent a boat? Anyone here from the area where we can meet up and say hi? We have not picked a date yet but we usually go on vacation in early August but have to go before mid August (wife is a teacher and has to be back to school around the 20th). Any particular area? North end of the lake? South? Any recommendations? We will be looking for some water activities and sightseeing and general relaxing...lol. Thanks!
