Group Winter Vacation: Best Luxury Villa Rentals in Georgia

Going on vacation is fun, but going with friends is even better. While most people vacation in the summer, that’s not necessarily the only time of the year. In fact, winter is a much better time for a luxury vacation in Georgia, because it’s not hot and humid. Besides, you won’t have to put up with long lines as everyone else is stuck working. Here are some fun things to do in Georgia.

Hit the Ball

There’s a little more skill involved than just hitting the ball, but you don’t have to be a pro to play. At the Callaway Resort & Gardens, you can play a friendly game of tennis, or you can schedule a lesson with a professional instructor. If you have an opinion on which type of court is better, you can rest assured that you have both clay and hard courts available to you. The courts are even lit to keep the game going after dark.

Tennis isn’t the only ball game you could play with your friends. A friendly game of golf is a great option to be out in nature and get some exercise. As with tennis, this is a fun sport for amateurs and professionals alike. Playing in a group can be even more fun when there’s a little friendly competition going on.

Explore Nature

Georgia is beautiful all year round. The weather is usually mild in the winter, which leaves you ample opportunities to explore nature. There are many miles of walking trails where you can enjoy the natural landscape. You can explore the lake and feed the fish and ducks this season. If walking isn’t your favorite activity, you can go biking instead.

It’s not easy to turn off technology and focus on nature, which is why activities like geocaching allow you to do both. In fact, they make exploring nature more fun, because they provide you with directions on where to go and what to do when you get there. With geocaching, you use the coordinates of GPS tracking to get where you want to go. Keep in mind that you can’t always take a straight path when you’re on the trail. This adds a little variant to each goal you’re trying to reach.

Relax at the Spa

Since you’re on vacation, you may not feel like overly exerting yourself. After all, you earned the right to relax. Instead of running down to the tennis courts, you can just take a short leisurely walk to the in-house spa. Whether you want a massage, a facial, a manicure and pedicure, or all four, you have all day to get spoiled. You can even enjoy these spa treatments with your group.

There are other group outing activities in Georgia that would be as much fun in the winter as they are in the summer. That includes boat tours, fine dining, and shows of all kinds. During the holidays, you can watch Fantasy In Lights at Callaway Resort & Gardens. There’s also nothing that says you can’t just spend the entire evening lounging around in your luxury villa. Good company, luxury accommodations, and fine dining will make your overnight stay a dream come true. Book your next vacation at Callaway Resort & Gardens today!
