    Lake Richard B. Russell State Park
    Swimming, rowing, canoeing, kayaking, golfing, spending the night (camping or in cabins), picnicing, boating, fishing, touring, and hiking are what make Russell great. A NEW 18-HOLE GOLF COURSE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION - EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETED BY WINTER, 2002.

    Clifford's sits on the quiet and serene Lake Russell. The restaurant is also known for the decorations inside (old street signs, posters, neon lights, a canoe on the wall, etc.). But most of all, Clifford's is known for their delicious shrimp. Steaks, chicken, hamburgers, and other seafood are also served.

    Favorite Dish: ribs 'n shrimp (only available on Thursday)

Elberton Transportation

    Elberton is easily accessible from Interstate 85 via State Routes 17 and 77, depending on where you are coming from. State Route 72 provides transportation to Athens (and ends within close proximity of SR 316 to Atlanta). SR 72 also provides access to Abbeville, Greenwood, Clinton, Chester, and Rock Hill, South Carolina. State Route 17 is 'Georgia's Scenic Route,' beginning in the mountains of Hiawassee, then following the Savannah River to the shores of Savannah. SR 77 begins at I-85 at the South Carolina line and ends at I-20 in Greene County.
    The Elbert Street Bypass (SR 17/72/217) provides easy transportation around town, and most of our new commercial development is here. For a more historical ride, go down Heard Street by way of the downtown square (from Athens or Royston, turn left at Oliver Street, go one block, turn left again, follow this road until it ends).

    Favorite thing: Feed fish at Russell Lake. I think feeding fish is even better than fishing! Besides, you don't have to stand there like a wax statue until you get a bite!

    Fondest memory: We had a good time feeding fish at the lake. Sometimes my aim was a little off, and I almost hit Kate in the head with the bread! The fish accidentally pushed some of the bread to the shore, which probably made Piper and Bailey happy because they went after the leftovers. Jason and I observed the animal comedy.
