    Busy are NE of Atlanta

    by 807Wheaton Written May 24, 2012

    This is a nice area outside Atlanta with the big Mall of Georgia as its attraction.
    There are quite a few good restaurants here also. We had a great lunch at Longhorns which is right on the outside property of the mall.

    Lake Lanier and Buford Dam

    by amyferguson Written Oct 4, 2002

    Lake Sidney Lanier is a man-made lake encompassing 38,000 surface acres. Underneath lies the remains
    of cities...roads, buildings, etc...
    The movie Deliverance was based on this area, but
    don't worry, any hillbillies that were here have been pushed out by all the suburbanites.
    Drive across the dam early in the morning.
    With a misty fog and a colorful sunrise its
    quite beautiful. There are also several trails.

    by Sassy417 Written Dec 28, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the VIP of all shopping malls that I've visited. Plenty of stores and merchandise to choose from. Armani, JCPenney, Dillards, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor, Barnes & Noble, J Crew, Pottery Barn, Macy's, to name a few. Lovely complex, very modern*Low sales tax on goods*

    What to buy: Clothing, jewelry, linens, luggage, silverware, dishes, furnishings, Home accemts everything at this mall. You name it, they have it*

    What to pay: Snag a few sales and find bargains in each store, yet most average pricing on merchandies but the sales tax is very low here* which makes for bargain shopping..we did all our Holiday shopping here and saved a bundle!

    Inside the mall at the entrance, a nice fountain

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
