How to End Winter Break with the Perfect Family Vacation

The holidays offer us a lot of opportunities to show our loved ones our appreciation. While gifts under the tree are nice, nothing is better than taking a family vacation. Instead of focusing on stuff you can buy at a mall, give them the gift of quality time in a beautiful place. Of course, not just any place will do! You’ve got to find a place that’s comfortable, appealing, and one that hosts great events. There’s only one place in the Southeast that can check all of those boxes, and that’s Callaway Resort & Gardens. Here are a few reasons why you should choose this resort for your winter family vacation.

Tons of Activities

If your kids are into nature, they’ll love the variety of activities and events that are available throughout the winter months. There are shows and lectures on birds of prey, butterflies, and the various critters found in the local woodlands. If they’d prefer to get a little dirty and be outside, you have amazing nature trails to choose from. You can walk these trails or rent a bike from the resort and take a ride through the gardens. Each trail is unique and features beautiful views that even the most avid hiker will appreciate. While the water may be a bit too chilly to dive into, boat excursions and fishing are also a great option—weather permitting of course!

Special Dining Events

If you have a foodie in the family, then you must take part in at least one special dining event. These dining events are designed by top chefs and will wow your taste buds. You have a choice between a variety of special dining or wine tasting events. If you’re into surf and turf, there’s a Seafood and Prime Rib Buffet offered on Friday nights. If you’re traveling from far away and you’ve never had real Southern food, you must try the Saturday Flavors of the South Buffet with all of the best comfort food Georgia has to offer!

Comfortable Accommodations

The best part about choosing to vacation at this resort is the fact that once you arrive, you never have to leave! You can attend all of the amazing events and shows and then rest your head at one of the many comfortable accommodations that are available. There’s the Lodge that offers a spa, upscale furnishings, and balconies with views of the gardens. You can also choose the Cottages which are nestled in a charming woodland neighborhood. Or you can stay at the Villas that have 2, 3, or 4 bedrooms. These Villas also come equipped with kitchens and dining areas so you can really make it your home away from home.

Vacation Packages

The only thing that’s better than the variety of activities and accommodations is the variety of family vacation packages near Atlanta to choose from!

There are romantic packages for couples or recreational packages for the adventurer in you. Callaway Resort & Gardens caters to big families, small families, couples, and individual travelers looking for a solo vacation.
