THE HOLIDAYS ARE UNDOUBTEDLY A TIME for tradition, but sometimes it’s time to shake things up. This year, Lake Lanier Islands is reinventing its beloved display of dazzling lights with Margaritaville’s Lakeside Lights Extravaganza, a walk-through festival of wintry fun. While you’re taking in the sights and sounds of the holidays, your family can also enjoy License to Chill Snow Island for tubing, skating, rides, and fresh snow blown daily. Make a weekend out of it with one of the resort’s overnight packages with options for breakfast with Santa, a pajama party with your favorite North Pole characters, or a virtual elf tuck-in.
