Once the presents have been opened and every last stocking has been searched, families can get dressed and head for some Christmas food and outdoor fun at Lanier Islands in Buford.

Kicking off the day will be a feast served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Sidney’s Restaurant at Legacy Lodge at 7000 Lanier Islands Parkway. The Christmas Day brunch will feature traditional favorites such as cinnamon apple croissant French toast, made-to-order omelets, deep-fried turkey breast with herbed gravy, garlic and rosemary spiked sirloin au jus, green bean au gratin and an assortment of delectable desserts.

“Our Christmas brunch is a well-deserved gift for the cook in the family — a day off from cooking and cleaning to simply enjoy some delicious food and a relaxing time with the ones they love,” Stephanie Orr, vice president of sales and marketing for Lanier Islands said in a news release. “When combined with all the fun to be found at our Winter Adventure, we’re sure this will be a Christmas to remember (and) possibly even a new tradition to be commemorated year after year.”

After brunch, guests may visit LanierWorld’s Winter Adventure, which includes classic carnival rides, speed slides, tubing, snow play zones, bubble skating and classic holiday films on the five-story high-definition screen.

Finally, when the sun sets, the lights go up on dozens of animated light displays peppered along a 7-mile route through the resort.

The Christmas Day brunch at Lanier Islands is $29.95 for adults, $24.95 for seniors ages 65 and older, $13.95 for children ages 6–12 and free for children ages 5 and younger. Brunch prices are subject to tax and gratuity.
