Southern Living explains how a competition between Georgia neighbors on Lake Sinclair has spurred an impressive light display which is only visible by boat. 

"What began as a friendly competition between neighbors to see who could decorate their boat house the best, has blossomed into an extravagant Christmas light show people are traveling to see."

"When the lights go out during the holiday season, a strip of boathouses along Georgia's Lake Sinclair transforms into "Christmas Cove," a winter wonderland created by a handful of individual families."


We love this unique, local tradition to adorn your dock with colorful Christmas cheer. Reflections of colorful lights dance on the water for all to see. Each house is different from the last, keeping you on the edge of your seat as you round the bend! For a cove that is sure to impress, head towards the south dam and it will be one of the last coves on the right. You can see the lights from the big water!

If you need to rent a boat many area marinas rent them, try Sinclair MarinaTwin Lakes Jet SkiSinclair Wild Watersports as well as Jere Shai Lakeside.

If you are looking to spot the big man himself, H20 Adventures and Santa have teamed up to offer Cruises with Santa this holiday season! Each cruise can fit up to 10 people and can be led individually or with a charter. Groups are welcome to bring their own refreshments for the cruise. Reserve your group today at (706) 800- 8420!
