Best Time to Plan Your Family Reunion!

Some of the best memories you make with your relatives can come from family reunions. These retreats are a great way to bring family members from all over the country together into one area to catch up and bond over great food and fun activities. Before you start planning your next reunion at a resort, you need to figure out the best time that works with the rest of your family. A summer trip might be your best bet since it has these distinct advantages over the other seasons.

School’s Out

Families with children who are still in school may be hesitant to pull their kids out of school if a reunion is held during school months. That’s why summer is the best time to have a family reunion. They won’t have to worry about their kids missing school.

Callaway Resort & Gardens is a great location for a reunion since it provides families with children of all ages plenty of opportunities to enjoy their time off. Children can take water skiing and wakeboarding lessons on the 65-acre Robin Lake, fly fast on the TreeTop Ziplines, or experience the joys of summer camp with the Summer Family Adventure. These activities allow kids the chance to try something they may have never done before or are unable to do back in their hometown while getting to know some of their relatives in the process.

Summer Holidays Give You More Vacation Time

Kids aren’t the only ones who have days off during the summer. Holidays around summertime, like Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day, gives you more vacation time. Schedule your family reunion around these holidays if you’re limited on vacation days. They give you an extra day of fun in the sun and bonding with your family. Resorts often have special holiday deals for families that want to do something special on their days away from work.

These are great times to book overnight stays at Callaway Resort & Gardens’ luxury cottages and villas. If your family wants to end the summer on a high, there is a special Labor Day Weekend Package that allows you and your relatives to participate in the annual Hot Air Balloon Festival and Blue Morpho Butterfly Celebration. Be mesmerized by the beautiful balloons and butterflies taking flight while lounging on the beach with family.

Paddle Boating

The Great Outdoors

Summer gives you plenty of reasons to plan your reunions outside. It has the ideal temperatures for picnics and family activities. Since there is also plenty of daylight during this season, you can also be much more flexible with what time of the day you want to schedule your events.

There are plenty of ways for you and your family to enjoy the natural landscapes of Callaway Resort & Gardens at your own pace. If you want to get your daily exercise by speeding past dozens of pine trees and bushes, you can rent bicycles to explore the 2,500 acres of land. Those who want to enjoy the views at a more leisurely pace can go paddle boating around Robin Lake Beach.

Callaway Resort & Gardens offers several outdoor areas and activities to make your family reunion an unforgettable event. Contact us for more information on reunion venues near Atlanta.
