Finish Summer Break with a Bang!
The month of August signals two things: family vacations and the end of summer. August is the month many families go all out and plan a final celebration of the warm weather. It’s also when they’re inspired to maximize time together before the start of a new school year. For the kids, August may bring on the blues. Even though they’re excited about starting school, they feel a little sad that summer break is almost over. Don’t let the blues cloud the remaining days of summer. Stick with us, and we’ll show you how to finish summer break with a bang!
Plan a Fun Family Getaway
There’s something special about packing the car and taking off for a few days away. Spending time away from home as a family means creating memories that often last a lifetime. When you reserve accommodations at one of the most popular family vacation resorts in Georgia, a spectacular getaway is guaranteed. Stay at Callaway Resort & Gardens where you’ll enjoy a family-friendly guestroom or suite at the Lodge and Spa. Feast your eyes on beautiful views. Revive your family’s spirits with first class amenities. Splash with the kids in the on-site swimming pool or relax in the hot tub. Slip away for an hour or two and enjoy a massage or facial. For a longer stay, or if your family likes more space, book a fully appointed VilIa or Cottage.
Soak up the Sun
Don’t forget to pack your swimming suits and sand toys! The resort features Robin Lake Beach where you can spend many happy hours soaking up the warm Georgia sun. Cool off in the sparkling water. Relax on the beach with your favorite novel while the kids build sandcastles. Feeling hungry? Head over to the Beach Pavilion for a refreshing drink and a yummy snack.
Take a Walk on the Wild Side
You won’t find many places where you can vacation with raptors, butterflies, and other wildlife. If you visit on a Saturday or Sunday, meet us on the Discovery Bridge for fishing. We provide poles and bait. Make sure you plan time for the butterflies. The Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center is home to these amazing winged creatures. Who knows, maybe one will land on your shoulder so you can share secrets. Combine wildlife viewing with two favorite activities for families in Georgia. Hiking and pedaling. Take a walk on of the many nature trails. Rent a bike and explore the Discovery Bike Trail. You can rent bicycles and equipment at several locations on the resort!
Calling All Shutterbugs
Whether you’re a camera master or wish you could take better pictures, you’ll find plenty of photo ops at Callaway Resort & Gardens. Take close-ups of the colorful flowers and trees. Practice capturing the stunning sunsets and sunrises. Visit the last weekend of August and hone your shutterbug skills at our Hot Air Balloon Festival. Participate in Mastering Night Photography. You’ll attend two classroom sessions and work on capturing shots at both the balloon launch and the balloon glow. You never know, you may have an aspiring photography in the family.
Learn and Grow Together
Join one of our Little Seedling Saturdays Workshops. Where you and your little ones can get creative, learn, and explore. Whether you’re making a paper bag owl, or ladybug rocks, you’ll be creating crafts and memories that your family will cherish forever!
