How to Say Thank You With a Family Getaway

It’s been a long, cold winter — wouldn’t it be amazing to get out of the house for a change? One of the best ways to greet spring is to “spring” a well-deserved vacation on your family, and there’s no better place to go for a long weekend getaway than Callaway Resort & Gardens. Here are just a few reasons Callaway Resort & Gardens is one of the best deals for vacations near Atlanta.

Celebrate Spring!

Callaway Resort & Gardens is beautiful all year-round, but at no time does it shine quite like the spring. With butterflies aplenty, flowers blooming in every direction, and the largest azalea bowl in the world (!) there’s no finer way to clear a dreary winter from your senses. In fact, Callaway Resort & Gardens’ Celebrate Spring! bed & breakfast package is specifically designed for the spring and flower enthusiast in all of us. Offered most weekends in the spring, each package offers overnight lodging with an awesome fresh breakfast buffet and Gardens admission. After your day taking in the beauty of nature, cap it off with dinner at one of Callaway Resort & Gardens’ several excellent restaurants. From casual family dining to fine gourmet restaurants, there’s something for every age and every taste. From dawn to dusk, the Celebrate Spring! bed & breakfast package makes every day a celebration of all that spring at Callaway Resort & Gardens has to offer.

Get Outdoors!

Spring is the time to shed the shackles of winter and get outside and play. Get the season started right with Callaway Resort & Gardens’ Family Fun Spring Break Package. Callaway Resort & Gardens has a ton of activities for every type of sports or outdoor enthusiast. With bike paths, tennis courts, canoeing, kayaking, and miles of walking and hiking available, your kids will happily put down their smart phones and tablets, not because you’re telling them to, but because they want to. Naturally, no one would blame you if you wrapped up a day of athletics with an appointment at our glorious spa. Included in the package is lodging at the Lodge and Spa, Villas, or cottages, and admissions to the Gardens for hours of strolling and taking in all that nature has to offer.

TreeTop Adventure

See the Forest from Above!

Besides all the fun you can have with traditional sports, hiking, and bike riding, another great way to break out of the winter doldrums is a day at Callaway Resort & Gardens’ TreeTop Adventure. Set high up amid the Georgia pines, TreeTop Adventure is a totally unique and fun way to explore the forest from up to 70 feet above the forest floor. While safely harnessed, you and the whole family can take on the challenging Discovery Course featuring ladders, logs, wires, netting, and five zip lines. Sign up for the Lake Course add-on for an additional five zip lines, including some that go over the lake itself. TreeTop Adventure is the perfect recreational activity combining fun, exercise, scenery, and family bonding.
