Use your family vacation in Lake Anna to keep some of your New Year’s resolutions.

It’s the second week of January, and now is the time that most people’s New Year’s resolutions are falling off one by one. Don’t toss your list in the trash just yet! A trip to Lake Anna can allow residents and visitors alike to fulfill some of those resolutions we may be tempted just to slough off to the side. Check out how you and your family can make this a year of change by the peaceful shores of Lake Anna.


Here are some New Year’s Resolutions, and where you can achieve them in Lake Anna:


1) Get Outdoors More

When did Netflix and playing games on a tablet become more enticing to our children than the great outdoors? Don’t be a couch potato this year! Why not take a camping trip to one of Lake Anna’s beautiful camping sites?

A trip to the Rocky Branch Marina and Campground may be just what your family needs. Open all year round, your family can participate in a number of lakeside activities, and get in touch with nature while spending quality time together.


2) Learn to Wakeboard, Wake Surf or Water Ski

They always say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. But I say never let age stop you from trying something you’ve always wanted to. Lake Anna is the perfect place to learn lakeside water activities like wakeboarding, wake surfing or good ol’ water skiing.

At Wake Anna Surf & Ski, let the experts in this shop set you up for an adventure of a lifetime. Whether you are young or old, learning a new hobby has never been this fun!

3) Start a DIY Home Project

If Lake Anna is your hometown, or if you have a summer home by the sparkling shores, let this be the year to make those home improvements you’ve always talked about.

At Louisa True Value in Lake Anna, you can find everything you need for a DIY home improvement project. And with ambition on your side, you can get it done!

If for some reason things don’t go the way you planned, and your DIY turns into a DIY disaster, check out these local Lake Anna contractors who can help you out and put everything to rights:

4) Get a Taste for the Finer Things in Life

When you go to a restaurant, and you’re asked for a wine selection… is this your response, “Um, I don’t know. Something red?” Don’t let the year pass without learning more about this libation.

The region in and around Lake Anna is famous for producing some of the best wines in Virginia. This year, get a wine-ducation. Click here for a full list of Lake Anna Wineries.

5) Experience the Arts & Culture

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” -Pablo Picasso

Experiencing visual and performing arts is either a priority or it is not. You will always be too busy to go to a gallery or a performance unless you make the time. This year, make the time. You will add enrichment to your life by doing so.

And while on vacation in Lake Anna, you can explore the arts, both visual and performing, at the Louisa Arts Center. Take a break from your daily busyness by trying something new this year.

6) Get in Shape

By far the most popular resolution. Getting in shape means that you stay committed. This may mean that you work out even while on vacation.

But never fear! Why not head down to the trails at Lake Anna State Park. Get fit while enjoying the beauty of nature. Hike, jog or bike, you’ll feel rejuvenated!

7) Enjoy the Beauty that Lake Anna Has to Offer

Make visiting this beautiful region one of your New Year’s resolutions that you keep! You and your family will enjoy every moment of fun, relaxation and bonding time.
