Don’t Miss out on Sip & Savor Spring 2018

Sip and Savor. Those words bring together two favorite activities. Drinking and eating. Tasting. Not just devouring food, but thoroughly enjoying the experience. Savoring is something almost pre-meditated. You may go so far as to dream about the upcoming food experience to the point where you taste before it even happens. When looking for fun things to do near Atlanta, make sure you include at least one activity where you experience the amazing food and drink Georgia has to offer.

Is Georgia on Your Mind?

Spring is coming soon! It’s a time when people are ready to cast off those winter blues and enjoy a much-needed vacation. Whether you reside here in the state, or live several states away, make sure to explore the many vacation destinations Georgia has to offer. Spring is a popular time to visit Georgia. Temperatures average 65 degrees during the day, with cooler nights, averaging in the 40s. You’ll miss the heat and humidity of the Georgia summer and will find plenty of fun activities.

Your Time to Rest and Recharge

What’s the point of a vacation if not to spend at least part of the time relaxing? With a diverse selection of hotels and lodging in Georgia, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect place to recuperate from the winter doldrums. Spring is the season when plants come back to life after hiding out underground all winter. It’s the same for people (unless you’re one of those snow seekers). An overnight stay at the Lodge and Spa of Callaway Gardens is a must! Play by day, unwind in one of the beautifully appointed guest rooms with lake, woodland, or garden views. Everything you need to recharge is here including a swimming pool and hot tub, luxurious spa treatments, and of course, nature.
