54 Perfect Day Trips from Atlanta

Bring a friend (or 8) to LaPrade’s Marina on Lake Burton

Invite up to eight people to ride with you around Lake Burton on a 21-foot pontoon boat rented from LaPrade’s Marina (from $175 for half day). Maybe you’ll spot local celebs like Nick Saban or Alan Jackson among the lake’s well-heeled residents. The marina, founded in 1925, has come a long way from its roots as a rustic fish camp. Line up for barbecue and fried pickles on the deck, or go upstairs for a steak.
