East Lake

In the early 1900s, East Lake was a popular vacation haven for Atlanta's well-to-do families. It subsequently continued to attract golfing enthusiasts who wanted to play at East Lake Golf Club, where golfing legend Bobby Jones played his first and last rounds of golf. Today, it remains a golfing destination, as well as hosting amenities such as parks, restaurants, and state-renowned schools.
