Lake Allatoona is about an hour away from Atlanta, and is one of many lakes in the Greater Atlanta area where you can have a lot of fun. Other nearby lakes include Lake Acworth, which is a few minutes away from me, and Lake Lanier (but there are way too many accidents there, so I would warn you to be very safety conscious).
Our spot of fun on Lake Allatoona was at the Paradise Boats jetty. Paradise Rentals has boats of different sizes, jet skis, and water toys that you can rent.
We chose to go with one of their bigger boats, as there would be almost 20 of us.
I really wish I could post photos of everyone else and all the fun we had on the boat. Unfortunately, after my recent scare, I'm VERY hesitant to post photos of my family, especially the kids.
We had the boat for 4 hours if I remember correctly, but since we started late, ended up with just 3 hours.
I made sure to wear my seashell necklace, which I made a long time ago. I found the shell on Elegushi Beach in Lagos, and it already had a hole for me to attach a chain through it.
We had a lot of fun on the boat, dancing to Nigerian music, gisting and enjoying each others' company. There's nothing like a happy family!
traveling and touring with a large group, that cost is minimized when shared by everyone.
rent jetskis for a fun day out.
