How to Plan the Perfect Romantic Getaway

Did the summer pass you by without a relaxing vacation for you and your significant other? If so, then it may be time to finally plan that romantic getaway weekend this fall! But where do you start? When planning a romantic getaway near Atlanta, there are a few things you should keep in mind so that you and your sweetheart have a trip to remember. Here’s a quick guide to help you plan the perfect romantic vacation at Callaway Resort and Gardens!

Find the Right Couples’ Package

Some people have learned to stay away from couples’ vacation packages, and for good reason. It’s not uncommon for these types of deals to be far too cookie cutter. The problem with these packages is that they don’t cater to the individuality of different couples. However, Callaway Resort and Gardens is different. We have a variety of amazing couples’ packages that are tailored to different types of personalities so that every couple can find their perfect fit.

You and your partner might select a deluxe romantic package that includes champagne, charcuterie boards, and only the best seating at the most exquisite restaurants. Or how about a beach day package that includes breakfast and a cozy setup of umbrellas and lounge chairs to spend a relaxing afternoon on the water? Maybe you’ve both been working hard and could use some pampering at the spa. There’s a package for that too! Enjoy a 50-minute couples’ massage and let the stress fall from both of your shoulders. Enjoy VIP access to the steam room, saunas, and whirlpool spas. Find the right couples’ package that specifically caters to you and your partner.

Plan Some Activities

While some couples enjoy lounging throughout the weekend without lifting a finger, other couples like to take advantage of the many recreational activities available at Callaway Resort and Gardens. You can enjoy a long stroll or bike ride through our nature trails or various gardens. There are tennis courts for couples who like a little competition while they’re on vacation. You can meet other couples and go for a group round of golf on our beautiful courses. If you’re up for a little adventure, you can even try zip lining! There are endless amounts of recreational activities to try. Check out our event calendar — you may be arriving just in time for an outdoor concert, a wine tasting, or a special dining event.
