With temperatures near 100°F almost every day for the last week, it’s good to know the best places in your neighborhood to cool off. A bonus: these are all low-cost or FREE!

Lake Lanier Parks

Maybe the best way to cool off is to take a dip in Lake Lanier’s refreshing waters. With over 50 corps, state, county, and city parks along its 680-mile shoreline, there is a place on Lake Lanier for everyone. Our favorite in Gwinnett is Buford Dam Park, where car admission is just $4 at the gate or $1 for pedestrians. This park has a beach with a designated swim area, picnic tables, volleyball and basketball courts, playgrounds, and covered pavilions. All you need is a beach towel and a cold beverage.

Memorial Day is Monday, May 28th, when we gather with family and friends to remember soldiers who died while protecting our country.  The official federal holiday was originally called “Decoration Day,” a day of remembrance enacted immediately following the Civil War.  In 1968, Congress established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May, and now it is a three-day weekend that marks the unofficial start of the summer season. 

Parades celebrating armed service members take place every year on Memorial Day in Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C., as well as in small towns across the country.  For local parades and events on Memorial Day in and near Metro Atlanta, visit Several local communities
