If you are from Georgia, you are familiar with Lake Lanier even if you’ve never been. It is the 5th largest lake in the state & by far the most notable. If you even hear the words Lake Lanier you automatically think boating amongst other things right? Think again…..
This past Saturday I had the pleasure of visiting Lake Lanier for the 1st time, but not to go boating or swimming in the actual lake. It was the Zip Line Canopy Tour that finally got me up to Buford, GA. The thrill of being suspended in air by only a cable, safely secured of course, was to much to pass up. LLCT offers a bevy of tours starting at an affordable $30 up to $100. We chose the Legacy Deluxe tour which was $80 a person for 9 different zip lines.
Our tour guides we’re patient, very friendly and even challenged us to a game of cornhole before the tour started. Safety is important at Lake Lanier Canopy Tour, so they spared no expenses strapping us in and giving us a beginners introduction. At the start of the tour there were 4 warm up lines before we got to the longer ones of the course. If you haven’t gotten the jitters out by then, they do have an escape line for those who can’t continue. At the risk of not chickening out, I decided to go first over the lake portion. I couldn’t help but smile like a baby the entire time. By the end of out 2 – 2.5 hour tour, I felt as if I was a zip lining guru.
At the end of the day LLCT was a great experience, full of memorable moments and Lake Lanier’s beautiful scenery. If you are looking for something different, affordable & exhilarating to do in Georgia, be sure to check them out here: Lake Lanier Canopy Tours
