Things to Do on Your Day Off to Recharge

After weeks or months of hard work on the job, you finally have some time off. The question is, what are you going to do with it? Relaxing around the house is certainly a reasonable option, but is that going to be enough rest for you to face the workdays ahead? The odds are pretty good you’ll need something a bit more comprehensive than just zoning out in front of the TV for a couple of days. To truly recharge your batteries, you’ll need a weekend getaway, and Callaway Resort & Gardens has exactly the activities you need. Here are just a few of your options.

A Spa Escape

Nothing says “relax” like a spa getaway at Callaway Resort & Gardens. Our health and wellness experts offer a vast array of services such as massage therapy, facial treatments, botanical body treatments, Ayurvedic treatments, and manicures and pedicures. When you’re not in the middle of a treatment, you’re free to pamper yourself in a heated pool, one of our Jacuzzis, the eucalyptus steam room, or the dry heat sauna. We have several spa packages available as well, including group and couples packages if you want to share your bliss with others while staying at our elegant Lodge & Spa or a nearby villa or cottage. If you want a holistic and spiritual approach to wellness, join Callaway Wellness Leader, Amy Fendley, April 10th through 12th for An Attitude of Gratitude weekend retreat where you can practice expressing thankfulness and appreciation in all aspects of daily living.


Everyone has their own way of relaxing. Some people like to melt their stress away during a massage, while others find the most satisfaction in getting their competitive juices flowing. If you’re in the latter category, there is no shortage of ways to break a sweat at Callaway Resort & Gardens. Book a golf outing with friends and hit one of our two world-class golf courses. Go for a hike or ride a bike on over 10 miles of nature trails or challenge yourself to our TreeTop Adventure & Ziplines. Fancy a game of tennis? We’ve got 10 lighted hard and clay courts, as well as daily clinics and lessons so you can finally master that backhand.

Fine Dining

One of the great things about being on vacation is you can give yourself license to eat whatever you want. Of course, at Callaway Resort & Gardens, you can indulge in fine dining, comfort food, or a combination of both. Enjoy a selection of modern Southern cuisine and craft beers at Cason’s Tap Room, or sample gourmet steak, poultry, or fish at elegant The Gardens Restaurant. Wake up to a hearty southern breakfast at homey The Country Kitchen, and on Fridays, have your fill at The Piedmont Dining Room’s Friday Night Seafood & Prime Rib Buffet. Whatever your tastes, you’re sure to return satisfied from your vacation getaway in Georgia.

With so many activities to choose from to go with our relaxing accommodations and world-class cuisine, when it comes to things to do near Atlanta, you can’t go wrong with Callaway Resort & Gardens. Book your next weekend getaway today by calling (844) 512-3826.
