Lanier Islands


The year 1962 marked a pivotal moment when the splendor and promise of four partially flooded mountaintops on Lake Lanier were recognized. Thus, the Lake Lanier Islands Development Authority (LLIDA) came into existence, spearheading the transformation of Lanier Islands into the extraordinary recreational haven it is today. By 1969, the iconic bridge to Lake Lanier Islands Resort was completed, while the '70s witnessed significant infrastructure development, shaping the resort into the remarkable destination it has become.
