In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in locations around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their child’s development, their child learns to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of preschool knitting circles.

Two towers jut out of facing beaches, joined by cables that span an unusually placid portion of Lake Lanier. When Wake the Lake Cable Park's small groups of customers suit up, however, the cable comes alive, towing boarders to and fro at blistering speeds. Nestled in a secure inlet surrounded by white beaches, the Park is sheltered from boat wakes so that beginners can acclimate themselves and can safely try out new tricks. A brand-new kicker box makes it even easier for boarders to grab some air and, for advanced riders, fistfuls of cloud.

Within Sunset Cove, a secluded corner of Lake Lanier, the water is usually quite calm. In fact, only one thing is known to regularly disturb it: the screaming wake of a speeding wake-boarder. The boarders ride courtesy of Wake The Lake Cable Park, whose powered cable system enables visitors to learn the art of wake-boarding in a controlled environment. Within the sheltered cove, the park's steel cable tows riders past a series of towers at a speed designed to simulate that of a professional wake-boarding speedboat or a recently spooked shark. In the process, it sends them gliding over rails and launching off table-top jumps and kickers planted in the middle of the water. One-on-one lessons with Hyperlite high-performance wakeboards begin at the cove's wraparound sand beach before heading out into the aquatic park, where instructors help riders hone their skills. Wake The Lake Cable Park's system is low energy and entirely emissions-free, allowing visitors to ride without worrying about disturbing local marine life or ruining their view of that cool pillow-shaped cloud.

The owners of Dead Center Indoor Gun Range founded their business to give shooters of all ability levels a place to feel safe while improving their marksmanship. To do so, they built a 25-yard, eight-lane indoor range—designed to handle both handgun and rifle fire—with a ventilation system that quickly purifies the air, as well as surveillance cameras that lovingly watch over shooters. To further demonstrate their commitment to safety, range chiefs make sure guests comply with NRA gun safety rules. Beyond supervising open shooting sessions, they also teach both armed and unarmed defense in beginner through advanced classes, such as Don't Be a Victim and the NRA FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation. Dead Center's staff also mans a pro shop and offers four levels of membership with privileges such as waived fees for firearm rentals.

Named one of Georgia's "Best Courses You Can Play" by Golfweek Magazine in 2012 and 2013, Reunion Country Club ripples over 6,936 yards of undulating terrain for a scenic, par 72 layout. Water hazards and thickets of native grass line the course's rolling fairways, making it imperative for golfers to stay in the fairway and out of rough's secret cookie jars. The par-five seventh hole features a golf novelty: two separate greens that golfers can choose to play. Though every other hole only boasts one putting surface, they each challenge golfers with A-1 bentgrass that will make putts slick and fast.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,936 yards from the tips
  • Course rating of 73.4 from the tips
  • Slope rating of 143 from the tips
  • Four tee options
