Houseboats, jet skis, wave runners, speed boats, boat storage – you name it, and Holiday Road on Lake Lanier has it. Just one trip down the road, and you can buy a boat, have it repainted, outfitted with a bigger motor, put in dry dock and sold…before your spouse even finds out! For a boater, Holiday Road is the equivalent of an outlet mall to a die-hard shopper – it”s one-stop shopping! Whether you”re into water sports or like cruising the lake, you”ll find what you need in just a short drive.

When it comes to boats, they”re more than just a means of transportation. There”s something about hearing the purr of an outboard motor, feeling the water slap against the bow as you slice through the waves and seeing the sun”s warm rays reflecting off the boat”s polished chrome. There”s also that feeling of pride in knowing you have a great-looking craft. The Grass Shack at Lake Lanier knows that owning a boat encompasses all that and more. That”s why they carry multiple boat lines that are custom built but offered at mass production prices. Some of their lines include Proline boats for offshore fishing, HarrisKayot Flotebotes and Campion luxury fishing boats.

For some, a boat becomes more than just a recreational pleasure. It becomes a way of life. Walk down a dock at Holiday Marina, and you”ll find the unique lifestyle exclusive to a houseboat owner…the friendly neighbors grilling out on their boat”s porch, the soothing feeling of being rocked to sleep at night, the constant weekend dock party. But be careful, hang around houseboat owners for very long, and you might find yourself spending the weekends on the water. If you do, Holiday Boat Sales has just the boat for you. From a 112-foot custom yacht with four bedrooms and three bathrooms to the more modest 64-foot, two-bedroom, one-bath houseboat, Holiday Boat Sales has a large inventory of new and used houseboats.

Need some boat repairs done? Just down the road is the Holiday Boating Super Center, the largest service center in the state. You can also find a home for your boat at Lazy Days Marina. The marina offers dry stack storage for boats up to 36 feet, open and covered wet slips for boats up to 100 feet plus, as well as trailer storage. They also have a gas dock and service department that can handle minor repairs as well as full maintenance.

While you”re there, why not rent a wave runner for an hour or two? Aqua Sports Adventures has Yamaha three-seaters that are fast and fun, while Wet Desert Water Sports also has three-seaters ready to hit the water. Not prepared to buy a boat just yet? These places also rent out pontoon boats, ski boats, deck boats, runabouts and fishing boats.

So whether you”re in a buying mood or just want a few hours of skiing or fishing, a visit to Holiday Road at Lake Lanier is just the thing to get you out on the water and having fun.
