Best Memorial Day Weekend Activities

5/10/2017 – If your Memorial Day weekend usually amounts to burgers and hot dogs on the grill with family and friends you tolerate at get-togethers, this year can be different! Invite all your favorites and book a stay at Callaway Gardens Resort instead. Your entire weekend will be filled with non-stop fun things to do, delicious food that’s much better than backyard hot dogs, and world-class relaxation. Stay in one of our weekend cottages or at the Lodge and Spa and you will enjoy the beautiful surroundings as well as endless amenities on your getaway.

Pamper Yourself

A weekend getaway isn’t a true vacation unless you take the time to pamper yourself. At Callaway Gardens Resort, that’s extremely easy to do. Our full-service spa is the perfect place to leave everything behind and have some “me” time. Get a massage, manicure, pedicure, facial, or enjoy our full salon and makeup services. Whatever you need to feel restored and rejuvenated, rest assured you can find it at Spa Prunifolia.

If you have your heart set on a specific treatment, just make sure to schedule an appointment as soon as you book your stay at the resort or make your plan to spend the day. Spa services are available for both overnight and day guests.

Enjoy the Outdoors

We all love to relax and feel beautiful, Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to enjoy some sun at the beach and the great outdoors. We have many activities at Robin Lake Beach for the whole family from swimming, sunbathing, kids zone to paddle boating.

And what’s a weekend with friends or family without a little friendly competition? We also offer tennis, beach and water sports, and one of Georgia’s top golf destinations. Who knew there was so much diversity in nature only an hour away from Atlanta? At Callaway Gardens Resort, bike along our 7-mile paved biking trail through scenic woodlands and convenient stops at other attractions. You won’t even need to worry about packing up all the gear yourself since we offer bicycle rentals along with helmets and child carriers.

If you’re not feeling the wheels and want to use your two feet instead, our numerous nature trails will lead you to the beautiful Mountain Creek Lake, the Overlook Azalea Garden, and much more.

Book a Weekend Cottage

With so much to do at Callaway Gardens Resort, it’s impossible to enjoy it all in just a day. Book an overnight accommodation to give yourself plenty of time to enjoy all the beauty and activities that will surround you. There are many overnight options for all tastes, including our secluded weekend cottages. You can book either a one- or two-bedroom cottage, and each features a full kitchen, fireplace, spacious living areas, as well as a screened porch.

If you’re looking for a more resort hotel feel, our Lodge and Spa offers rooms and suites with picturesque views and resort amenities. Guests even enjoy free admission to Callaway Gardens for their entire stay. But when you’re done with nature for the day, just know you can come back to your room and enjoy high-speed WiFi and a flat screen TV.

Memorial Day is approaching fast! Book your stay at the Callaway Gardens Resort today!
