Forget the Chores: It’s Time for Weekend Fun!

A new school year may have started again, but that doesn’t mean you have to pack up the fun. Relaxation and restoration aren’t restricted to the summertime – why not plan a fun-filled weekend with the kids? Make it a great time for you and your family, you and your friends, or just you. Break your routine and leave the chores behind for a few days. A family vacation package in Georgia from Callaway Resort & Gardens is perfect when you need a brief retreat from everyday life.

Family Time

The beautiful Callaway Resort & Gardens, located just 60 minutes southwest of Atlanta, has something for the whole family. Explore some of the 2,500 acres of gardens, trees, and natural beauty. Hike along a walking trail or rent a bicycle and explore even more of Mother Nature’s playground. Enjoy the freedom from your daily worries and listen to the sounds of the birds.

If you want a little more excitement, check out the TreeTop Adventure and ziplines. The ziplines measure from 44 to 700 feet, so you can choose your level of adventure. You can soar through the forest or over a lake. Take on obstacles like ladders, logs, and netting. If your child is at least 4 years old and 3 feet tall, there’s a fun-filled course waiting for him or her!

After an action-packed day, return to your relaxing rooms at one of our beautiful cottages. Prepare a meal in your full kitchen. Kick back, play games, or just enjoy the gorgeous scenery on your screened porch. You can even ride your bikes over to the community swimming pool for a nighttime dip!
