The same quality magazine that you’ve grown to love in Lake Magazine is also a part of the newly redesigned Lake Martin Living. The difference in the two is the focus. Where Lake stays in tune with what’s happening directly on Lake Martin, Lake Martin Living is in the loop with the character and soul of the lake region.
