What about a car?  Lake Lanier is not close to too much else other than boating/hiking.

Wanna surprise my wife for her birthday. She loves aquariums.
Plan is to fly from LGA-ATL  on BA or SW, aquarium and coke museum, early dinner at Fuego Mundo and head home that night.
Feasible or too ambitious?

If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

Sounds good to me! Though you may end up either skipping Coke museum or just ordering dinner to go. Either way I'd say gk for it.
