With only a few weeks left until school starts up, if you want to take your family on a fun-filled vacation on Lake Lanier in Georgia, then do it now before the school year starts. Spending time on Lake Lanier there’s not only a lot to do in the area, but it’s also relatively close to Atlanta with only 30 minutes of travel. However, at Freedom Boat Club, we bet you probably want to stay around the area to enjoy some time with your loved ones. With two locations, one in Buford and the other in Cumming, Freedom Boat Club is happy to say you’ll have a fun-filled vacation at each of our locations. Our Buford location is our older location and you can take advantage of choosing from a variety of boats that we provide. Our newer, second location, Cumming, is a little closer of a drive and you can also pick from pontoon or speed boats to take out onto Lake Lanier. For an enjoyable and relaxing vacation, come down to Freedom Boat Club to go boating and engage in other entertaining activities for the whole family.
