Lake Jackson is a private lake in Marietta, Georgia, just north of Georgia’s capital city, Atlanta. It is eight minutes from Northside Hospital and 45 minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Lake Jackson is 17 acres in size, perfect for recreational activities for all ages, including fishing for bass and swimming.
Nearby is the Chattahoochee Nature Center, featuring 1270-acres of forest, wetland, and river habitat with trails, exhibits, programs, and events.
The Morgan Falls Overlook Park is a 30-acre park by the river with picnic pavilions, playground, restrooms, boat dock, hiking trail, fire pit, porch swing, and scenic views. There is also a High Country Outfitters that operates a seasonal waterside paddle shack as well as paddleboard, kayak, and canoe rentals.
Twelve minutes away is the Cherokee Town and Country Club, one of America’s premier private clubs and offers a whopping 36 holes of premium golf.
Marietta is home to six historical districts as well as the brand new complex, The Battery, the 1.5-million-square-foot entertainment district surrounding Trust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves.
The Battery is home to some of Atlanta’s celebrated culinary artists and mixologists. It also includes unique retailers, entertainment options, and the Coca-Cola Roxy, a 4,000-seat venue for all genres of live music.
Marietta is also home to two top-class breweries, Red Hare and Glover Park. Red Hare is the oldest craft brewery in Marietta and offers seven year-round beverages. Glover Park is located in a 1930s era brick building and offers not only a quality selection of craft beer but also a quality rotation of food trucks and restaurants.
If Marietta is not enough, Lake Jackson residents can travel further south to Atlanta. Atlanta is home to a seemingly endless number of entertainment opportunities.
One of these is the Georgia Aquarium, which is open all week long, 365 days a year, and contains over 11 million gallons of water and a ton of aquatic species.
Close by is the World of Coke, a museum showcasing the history of the Coca-Cola soda company. The attraction features a 4D movie theater, a fully functioning bottling line, and a tasting room where visitors can taste over 60 different flavors from around the world.
Ponce City Market is a mixed-use development in Atlanta and includes many retailers and restaurants.
Finally, Atlanta is a great destination for sports fans. Football, baseball, basketball, and soccer junkies can enjoy professional sporting franchises such as the Falcons, Braves, Hawks, and United. College football fans may also enjoy watching Georgia Tech football at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
