Simple Steps for the Perfect Spring Vacation Family Reunion

Ah, the family reunion. It’s the kind of thing everyone knows they have to do, but no one really wants to do it. Maybe that’s because we’ve all grown tired of family reunions where everyone gathers at a person’s home. On the one hand, that puts a lot of pressure on whoever is hosting the event. On the other hand, getting together for a long day and dinner with even your most beloved family members can get pretty boring if you stick to the same routine over and over. For your next family reunion this spring, why not break the mold by booking a group vacation at Callaway Resort & Gardens instead? Here are some tips for executing your family reunion ideas near Atlanta that are sure to be a hit with your loved ones.

Book Your Rooms

The first thing you’ll need to consider when family reunion planning outside Atlanta is where everyone is supposed to stay. This can be difficult, depending on the number of people. Also, you’ll want to factor in how close everyone is. If you haven’t had a reunion in a number of years, it might be awkward putting everyone together under the same roof. At Callaway Resort & Gardens, there are several options, so you’ve got the bases covered. If you want to spread out your family and give them some privacy, you can book a few rooms at The Lodge and Spa. The accommodations are modern and comfortable, and everyone will love the fact that there’s a full-service spa, a swimming pool, and a cabana-style bar right on site. Depending on the size of your party, you can put them up in one or two-bedroom cottages, complete with full kitchens and fireplaces, or even a two to four-bedroom villa.

Plan Some Activities

No family reunion is complete without shared memories to go with them. The problem with scheduling activities for everyone is not everyone likes to do the same kind of thing. Some members of your family might like to play golf or tennis, while others would prefer a relaxing walk in the woods. Callaway Resort & Gardens makes the decision process easy because there are so many things you can do. Besides world-class golf and tennis, there are over 10 miles of walking and hiking paths, not to mention the beautiful gardens themselves. There’s excellent fishing spread across 13 lakes, and several water sports available as well when the weather warms up in June. For something less sporty, take your peeps on a tour of the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center, home to around 1,000 butterflies in one of the largest tropical butterfly conservatories in North America. There are also special events happening all the time, such as Callaway Gardening School on March 27 – a fun and educational way to kick off the spring gardening season.
