The Farewell to Norman’s Landing

The Farewell to Norman’s Landing

Norman’s Landing has been a staple for delicious seafood in Forsyth County & Cumming GA since 1995. This month Norman’s Landing will be closing its doors for good. And I think we all can agree Norman’s Landing will be greatly missed! The restaurant has given so much back to the community and provided great seafood!

I spoke with Bill Norman this morning and discussed the final days of Norman’s Landing. You can still enjoy the delicious food and drinks for a few more weeks. They have a couple of events that I wanted to share with you today.

Also, my friend Julie from MyForsyth Magazine published a beautiful article about Norman’s Landing. I’d love for you to read it – Farewell Norman’s Landing.

Norman's Landing

More About Norman’s Landing:

In 1995, when Bill Norman began building his restaurant on a 3-acre piece of land in south Forsyth County, Georgia, everyone told him he was crazy. You’ll never make it, they said. You’re building a restaurant in the middle of nowhere, they said. But Bill had a dream.

As a native of Atlanta, Bill had been visiting Lake Lanier and Forsyth County since his childhood and has lived on Lake Lanier for almost twenty years. He knew that this would soon become one of the fastest growing suburban areas in the nation. You could say he was ahead of his time.

65+ Days of Summer Things To Do In Forsyth County

Summer Things To Do in Forsyth County

65+ Days of Summer Things to Do in Forsyth County 

I love that picture of the kids playing in the pool! It just reminds me of summer. Well – It’s officially SUMMER BREAK here in Forsyth County! And if you are like me, then you are going to be looking for summer things to do in Forsyth County!

When it comes to summer break – what are you most excited about? I’m most excited about two things: not getting up at 5:30am & not sitting in carline everyday!

About a month ago I started thinking about summer and putting together a rough plan for us. As I was doing that I thought to myself – I bet other people could benefit from my planning! Long story made short – that is how the “65+ Days of Summer” e-book was created.

Summer Things To Do In Forsyth County

I began making a bucket list for everything we could do in Forsyth County this summer. Then I organized it into seven categories…

  • Indoor Fun (Story Times, Jumpy Places, Indoor Entertainment, Theatre & Crafting or Cooking Places)
  • Outdoor Fun (Pools, Water Fun, Parks, Playgrounds, Farms, Farmer Markets & Fishing Spots)
  • Create Something (Building or Art Locations)
  • Movie Time (Free Movies & Cheap Movies)
  • Sweet & Treats (Ice Cream Shops, Bakeries & Tea Rooms)
  • Fun At Home (Ideas Of Things To Do Around Your House)
  • Summer Events (Organized In Order By Date)

With some graphic design it became a 12-page downloadable and printable e-book in a checklist format. And I decided to give this away for FREE as a BIG THANK YOU to all my readers and website sponsors! The Cumming Local Facebook page just hit over 10,000 followers. Also, the newsletter subscription has double as has the website traffic. And I have partnered with some really fabulous local businesses.

Without further ado…I give you the 65+ Days of Summer: A checklist of things to do & places to go this summer in Forsyth County & Cumming, GA.

Strawberry Picking in Forsyth County at Warbington Farms {2017 Season}

Strawberry Picking in Forsyth County

Strawberry Picking in Forsyth County at Warbington Farms

Oh boy!  It’s strawberry picking time in Forsyth County!  And lucky for us, Warbington Farms is OPEN NOW!  We have from now until the second week of June to pick some farm fresh strawberries from Warbington Farms. I absolutely LOVE fresh strawberries so this time of year always makes me happy.

Warbington Farms is a U-Pick farm. If you’re on a time crunch or just don’t feel like picking your own, you can also purchase previously picked strawberries (when available) for an extra surcharge.

While you’re there, let the kids take advantage of some Farm Fun including hay rides, inflatable slide & petting zoo.  Activities and fees vary depending on the day.

Personal Tips:

1. It’s never a bad idea to call ahead or check their Facebook page to make sure they still have plenty to u-pick … especially if you’re driving from a big distance.  Farming isn’t an exact science after all!
2. Check out their other farm produce while you’re there – In the past, I have snagged some farm-raised eggs for a great price!
3.  Buy a lot – they freeze great!
4.  And then be ready for all those strawberries!  You might want some new recipes, check out our “Berry Recipe” Board on Pinterest for a few ideas.

Here’s some more great Tips for Visiting a Pick Your Own Farm from Really, Are you Serious?

More Information:

2017 SPRING SEASON:

  • Warbington Farms is NOW OPEN for Strawberry Picking!
