Start off the New Year at Callaway Gardens

1/12/2017 – It’s a New Year, which means it’s time for you to start anew. There are many ways that people do this, from eating better to hitting the gym to cutting back on their spending. If you’re looking to renew yourself in 2017, there’s no better way to do it than here at Callaway Gardens. Here are a few ways that we can help you to meet your New Year’s resolutions and improve yourself this year.

Spend More Time with Family

Resolving to spend more time with your family is always a great goal to set. But some parents struggle to think of things that they can do as a family that everyone will enjoy. At Callaway Gardens, we have lots of activities for families near Atlanta, from fishing and boating at Falls Creek Lake to high-flying fun with our zip-lines and ropes courses. If you’re setting the resolution to bring your family closer together this year, Callaway Gardens is a great place to do it.

Get in Shape

A large number of people resolve to lose weight and get in shape every New Year. But the gym is not for everybody, and often, those who don’t enjoy jogging in place for hours every week end up failing to meet their goals. But disliking the gym does not have to be a guarantee of failure; if you can find a form of exercise that you actually enjoy, then you’re more likely to succeed.

Instead of wasting your money on gym memberships you won’t use, get your exercise on our beautiful walking and biking trails as often as you like by purchasing one of our annual passes to fit your needs! The beautiful scenery at Callaway Gardens will make your daily exercise feel like less of a chore, and you may actually find yourself enjoying a daily jog instead of dreading it.

Learn Something New

As human beings, we have a natural desire to learn about the world around us and to sate our near constant curiosity. Setting a goal to learn something new or teach yourself a new skill is an admirable way to improve yourself in the coming year. Not sure exactly what kinds of things you would like to learn? Consider learning more about the natural world around you.

At Callaway Gardens, we have a number of educational courses that can teach you about everything from butterflies to birds of prey. Come attend a few classes and see how much you can learn.

Rekindle the Romance

Whether you’ve been married for decades or are still dating, resolving to rekindle the romance in your relationship is a wonderful New Year’s resolution. You can reconnect with your significant other and end up with a relationship that is stronger than ever.

If you’re still looking for special ways to build your romantic relationship, consider booking a vacation getaway near Atlanta with Callaway Gardens. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy time amid nature with the one you love most. You’ll be able to focus on time with one another and will find yourselves more in love than ever before.

Book your visit today, and make 2017 your best year yet.
