Lake Walton is a relatively new lake community near Monroe, Georgia, just east of the state’s capital, Atlanta.
It is 13 minutes from Piedmont Walton Hospital and a little less than an hour from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Currently about 300 acres, Lake Walton is growing. A marina with boat slips as well as boat ramps and nature trails are planned and will be accessible to those who live in the gated communities that surround the lake.
The Lake Walton community offers off-the-water amenities such as tennis and basketball courts, a swimming pool, and a clubhouse.
Golfers can choose to join one of two country clubs nearby, the Bear Creek Golf Club or the Monroe Golf and Country Club.
Scattered with conserved antebellum architecture, the city of Monroe offers countless opportunities for shopping, dining, and entertainment.
Monroe is proudly the "Antique Capital of Georgia" and hails over 250,000 square feet of antiques, vintage, and repurposed items.
Lake Walton is around 40 miles from Athens, Georgia, home to the University of Georgia (UGA), which is known for its rich college football tradition and its thriving nightlife.
Football fans can go watch the Dawgs at Sanford Stadium on Saturdays throughout the fall. Fans often tailgate around Athens on game days.
To the west of Lake Walton is the city of Atlanta. Atlanta is home to numerous entertainment and leisurely activities as well as shopping outlets and tourist attractions.
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 seemingly endless number 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.
