Summer Bucket List – Fun Things You Must Do!

The Bucket List

Summer is here, why not create a bucket list of wayside stops on the highway of summertime fun and adventure. Here are some ideas to make this summer memorable!

Where to Go?

If you and your family are searching for vacation packages in Georgia, look no further than Callaway Resort & Gardens just a short ride from Atlanta. Book a tee time and enjoy the drop into 18 shallow holes or sweat the courts dry and immerse yourself in the love of tennis. Wet a line at some of the best fishing lakes in the southeast, bike and hike mountain trails in the heart of mother nature or gather up the kids for an outstanding geocaching adventure. Let Callaway Resort & Gardens, one of the premier family vacation resorts in Georgia, punch your ticket to summertime fun.

Golf Mountain View

Most golfers will tell you that 9 may be fine, but 18 is always better. What about 36? Callaway Resort & Gardens boasts two of the top golf courses in Georgia. Challenge yourself, your friends or your family members on the PGA-level Mountain view golf course. 12 times this course has been fortunate enough to host the Buick Challenge, pitting some of the top golfers in the world against the splendor of Georgia’s finest scenery. If you love the water, Mountain View will surely satisfy.

Golf Lake View

The incomparable beauty of the Lake View Course caters to the golfer who hasn’t yet quite reached the crescendo of PGA level quality playing. There is still plenty of water to be had at Lake View, but the wider fairways, greens and bunkers were designed with the average player in mind. If you have any apprehension or anxiety about a public display of your golf acumen, try a warm-up at the world-class Twin Oaks Practice Facility.



Do you fancy yourself a fisherperson? No fishing license is necessary to ply your craft in the 13 lakes of Callaway Resort & Gardens. Trophy-sized Largemouth Bass with jaws wide enough to hold a grapefruit share these waters with Black Crappie, and monstrous sunfish such as Bream and Shellcracker. Several lakes are also seasonally stocked with the beautiful and hard-fighting Rainbow Trout. Rent a canoe, john boat, kayak, and tackle, including rods and reels from the on-site Kingfisher Outfitter and relish a little piece of angler heaven.


The sanctity and prestige of the game of Kings and Queens will not be forgotten or otherwise tarnished at Callaway Resort & Gardens. Callaway features 10 lighted courts, both clay and hard surface, a pro shop, and experienced, professional instructors. For the love of the game, the only thing better than a beautiful court to a tennis player, might be the awesome beauty of nature that surrounds and enhances those courts. Hone your game at one of the many clinics or schedule a lesson today.


Nothing pairs the wonder of modern technology with good old-fashioned family fun and adventure like geocaching. Imagine searching for more than 40 caches amongst 2,500 acres of awesome Georgia outdoors! If you can find one, trade an item that tells the world that you had the family vacation of your life at Callaway Resort & gardens. Book your adventure today!
