A Snowbird’s Guide to Winter Activities Down South

It’s often difficult to find new and exciting things. As a snowbird, you have a routine every winter, but you may want to switch it up and check out a new place. However, you’re unsure where to go. There’s an easy fix to this problem: a resort. When looking, there are many family vacation resorts in Georgia to choose from but one that stands above the rest.

Callaway Resort & Gardens offers guests an amazing experience, whether for a short or extended stay. You’ve got many options for fun and relaxing activities during the winter months. Here are just a few.


Everyone loves to golf. Callaway Resort & Gardens offers two great courses. The PGA-level Mountain View course hosted the Buick Challenge for 12 years. Challenge yourself and see how you stack up with the likes of David Toms, David Duval, and Davis Love III.

If a relaxing round is more your speed, the Lake View course offers a scenic and fun experience. It features beautiful views of the Georgian landscape and lots of water. Callaway Resort & Gardens has several golf packages that can help you get your fill.


A resort wouldn’t be anything without a top-of-the-line spa. Callaway Resort & Gardens’ spa features:

  • Skin Care
  • Waxing, Hair, & Makeup
  • Massages
  • Body Treatments
  • Wellness Soaks
  • Nail Treatments
  • And More

Why not pamper yourself? Give this a try and slip into blissful serenity.


At Callaway Resort & Gardens, there are endless possibilities to explore. Journey around the 2,500 acres, bask in the scenic gardens, and enjoy over ten miles of winding trails on foot or rent a bicycle to cover more ground. You won’t run out of things to see.


Callaway Resort & Gardens offers several dining options, each one unique unto itself. Stop by the Piedmont Dining Room and try the Creole Shrimp, or if you’re looking for a drink, check out Cason’s Tap room for craft beers and delicious cocktails. The Gardens Restaurant provides an elegant dining option while incorporating many regionally grown ingredients. There are several other dining options that you’ll be itching to discover.

Cottages and Villas

Experience the relaxing comfort of Callaway Resort & Garden’s cottages and villas. The cottages are nestled in a wilderness setting and provide a spacious home-away-from-home. For a more luxurious stay, check out the villas. Also hidden in the Georgia wilderness, the villas provide comfort and bliss. Both options offer a variety of amenities.

Snowbird Excursion Package

With so many options, it can be hard to decide on one. This is a perfect opportunity to check out the Snowbird Excursion Package. It includes a stay in a cottage or villa and such activities as golf, wine tasting, bingo, and more. It’s the perfect, all-encompassing option for those who want a bit of everything.
