Your Islands' Holiday Kickoff

Memorial Day Weekend

Hello Islands’ nation!...This is our summer kickoff!

Let’s start something adventurous this summer, and leave the memories of cold weather far behind us. Come ride the water slides, soar through the skies on zip lines, or take a calm approach and dip your toes in the lake while sunbathing along our pristine beach. Whatever you decide, come do it at  LanierWorld!

Dine right on the beach or catch a pick-up game of volleyball at Sunset Cove! If you love live music, this weekend is the perfect time to enjoy a combination of bands and DJs rotating at any of our outdoor stages. There will be food and drink specials all weekend long, with 3 nights of fireworks & special broadcasts on the Spectacular Screen! This is the long weekend to enjoy family, friends and FIREWORKS!!

Do you want to save this holiday weekend? Purchase a season pass online or at the gate and use it each day of the holiday weekend. The remarkable value is that the season pass is paid for after only three visits to the Islands - and you get to use it for the entire season!  

While we’re having a good time, let’s not forget Memorial Day’s meaning. A special presentation honoring all American military who paid the ultimate price will feature on the Spectacular Screen.

As a reminder, all military and first-responders have free entry to Lanier Islands.

This is a Memorial Day Weekend you cannot afford to miss!
