Spring is in full swing, and if fun in the sun weren’t enough to look forward to, City Harbor at Lake Guntersville is opening soon. The multimillion-dollar dining, retail and entertainment hub is set to open by June, with most businesses opening in early May. Read on to start planning your visit.

An experience like no other

Condos? A cigar lounge? Indoor and outdoor bars? Yeah, City Harbor’s got it all. Construction began on the $15 million project a little over a year ago, and now we’re almost at the finish line.

What makes it even cooler? If a boat is your main form of transportation in the summer heat, you’re in luck. City Harbor is easily accessible by land and by boat to keep the fun going even after you dock.

The upscale family experience is located on scenic Lake Guntersville, for beautiful views to enjoy while you dine, relax or shop till you drop.
