Stretching from Alexander City to Tallassee is Lake Martin, a 40,000 acre haven for fisherman, swimmers, boaters, and anyone who enjoys beautiful natural scenery. And with 750 miles of shoreline, there is plenty of scenery to enjoy.The clean, clear water of Lake Martin is perfect for skiing, swimming, scuba diving, and fishing. Fisherman love trolling for the large mouth and striped bass, bream, bluegill, crappie, and catfish that live in the lake. And there are numerous marinas and piers around for launching motorboats, sailboats, kayaks, canoes, and even rowboats.
Lake Martin is also desired for its Central Alabama climate. Even in January, temperatures rarely fall below freezing. And when those hot Alabama summers come around, a nearby lake comes in pretty handy.With all the activities available, Lake Martin is the perfect place to raise your children or to provide an exciting visit for your grandkids. Southern hospitality combined with endless water recreation possibilities makes living in Lake Martin a never ending vacation!
