Ring in the New Year at Callaway Resort & Gardens

New Year’s Eve doesn’t have to consist of sitting at home watching a countdown program, then going right to bed when the ball drops. What if you had an unforgettable experience instead? This year is the year that you should stay off the easy chair and explore your options out of town instead. But if you are near Atlanta and are wondering where to stay in Georgia, explore the playful and entertaining experiences at Callaway Resort & Gardens. This natural retreat in Pine Mountain, GA, offers pristine beauty and endless fun for all ages. Whether you are a group of young adults looking for a fun New Year with friends or want to bring the family together for a brand-new experience, Callaway Resort & Gardens offers a variety of activities in a beautiful setting that’s exactly what you’re looking for.

Where to Stay

The Deep Forest Serenity Spa package is a romantic and unique spa experience that’s great for couples or a group of girlfriends. What’s more, a night in the Lodge & Spa offers you free admission for each guest to the Gardens, which is the perfect place to unwind after a long year.

What to Do

There are virtually endless possibilities for fun at Callaway Resort & Gardens. Do you want a thrilling, outdoorsy New Year? Try soaking up precious winter sun at Robin Lake Beach, or consider renting a boat for some time on the water. Enjoy a fun family stroll through Fantasy In Lights, a holiday lights experience that is sure to amaze. It’s an indescribable experience that you have to see to believe! Children and adults will love the fascinating displays and learning opportunities at the Discovery Center, and you can explore the beauty of natural colors in the Butterfly Center, situated in a gorgeous glass dome that is a must-see feature of its own.
