4 Signs You Need a Weekend Getaway

Do you walk into a room and forget what you were going for? Is your calendar so full that it’s overflowing? Or perhaps you haven’t seen your partner in an eternity. Whatever the case may be, it could be a sign that you need to have a weekend getaway from home and all of life’s craziness.

One great option for getting away for the weekend is Callaway Gardens. These Gardens have something for everyone in the family. They will also have the 25th  Fantasy In Lights starting in November, one of the best light and sound shows in the South! So, how do you know if you need a weekend getaway? Let’s look at a few of the signs.

• Forgetfulness – If you find that you are repeatedly forgetting things, it could be a sign that you have too much on your mind. A fun and friendly atmosphere with plenty to do, including an exciting round of golf could be just what you need. The perfect weekend escape can help you clear your head and focus on the things that really matter in life.

• Exploding Calendar – Similar to a full mind, a calendar that is bursting at the seams is a sure sign of needing to get away. Staying that busy for too long will result in you becoming less productive and also may lead to the first sign mentioned, forgetfulness. So before you start to lose your mind and control of your calendar, clear a weekend to save your calendar and escape to Callaway Gardens to bring your life back under control.

• Crazed Kids – If your children have a crazy look in their eyes, or they are telling you that you do, then it is probably time to book that getaway. On the other hand, if you haven’t seen your children for a while and have been primarily communicated through electronic devices, a weekend away can help bring the family back together. Places like Callaway Gardens have something for everyone in the family to relax and re-center themselves.

• Job Stress – Is your job getting the best of you? Maybe you just completed a major project that took up a lot of your time. Perhaps you have a coworker that knows how to push your buttons or a boss that just doesn’t understand. Regardless of the reason, if your job is stressing you out, a weekend trip to Callaway Gardens, especially during Fantasy In Lights, could be just the medicine you need to return to work on Monday refreshed and ready to take on any challenge thrown your way.

So now that you know the signs of needing a weekend getaway, you should probably have some ideas of what do during that getaway. The best place to start your weekend is at the Lodge and Spa with the attached Spa Prunifolia, to restore your body and mind. Callaway Gardens has everything you need to keep your family entertained and engaged with one of the Gardens’ weekend vacation packages.

They have two different golf courses and a practice facility. They also have the TreeTop Adventure, a collection of zip lines and obstacle courses meant to get your adrenaline flowing! If nature is more your thing, they have the Day Butterfly Center, where you can walk with over 1,000 butterflies of 50 different species! After you’ve walked with the butterflies, you can learn about Birds of Prey with their daily shows. Whatever you need for your weekend getaway, Callaway Gardens has it and will make it a memorable experience.
