Our Top 5 Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day 

 Ladies and gents, love is in the air! Just like the flowers blooming in the gardens, love is blossoming all around! With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, we’ve compiled a list of romantic date ideas for you and your special someone. At Callaway, we believe nothing says, “I love you” more than two people getting to share an experience and quality time together. 

Happiness Is… A Picnic in the Garden

Sometimes, sweet and simple is the way to go! The gardens at Callaway provide the perfect setting to create a uniquely beautiful environment for an old-school picnic date. One of our favorite spots is the Overlook Pavilion as it serves splendid views of the gardens. Casual picnic dates give you the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere while also getting out in the fresh air. 

Sunset Strolls Along Robin Lake 

Everyone knows sunsets are beautiful and romantic. However, the best sunsets reflect sunlight over the water and cast a warm, shimmering glow over the surrounding woodland area. It’s an iconic image that we see in movies so much that it’s almost synonymous with “… and they lived happily ever after.” Feel the sand between your toes along the shores of Robin Lake as you feel the love this Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to appreciate your sweetheart walking hand in hand while enjoying deep conversation and gorgeous views.

Spa & Couples Massage 

Our luxurious Spa and couples’ massages are renowned for their ability to connect humankind with the natural world. Some of the major benefits of a massage include increased peace of mind, reduced anxiety and enhanced calmness. Take your partner’s breath away with this thoughtful and rejuvenating date night idea. A trip to our Spa will certainly connect you two in a serene and essential fashion this Valentine’s Day.

Unwind for an Overnight Stay at the Lodge & Spa

Sometimes, you just need a change of scenery to shake things up. Looking for the perfect escape from home? Search no farther than the Lodge at Callaway Resort and Gardens. The modern guest rooms feature a balcony with lovely garden, woodland, and lake views. Nearby, tucked away in a courtyard, you’ll find a swimming pool with a cabana style bar, a hot tub, and peaceful sitting areas for relaxation and great one-on-one time. Your romantic getaway will no doubt create lifelong memories that you and your significant other will forever cherish. 

Dinner for Two at Piedmont, Drinks Afterwards at Cason’s 

Maybe you want to take the more classic route this year with dinner and drinks for two. Whether it is your first Valentine’s Day as a couple or if you’ve been together for years, you can’t go wrong with fine dining and after dinner drinks. Enjoy delicious eclectic Southern fare with tasty cocktails as you and your partner take it back to the basics. Conversation will flow and sparks will fly as you connect on this thoughtful and romantic date. And the atmosphere couldn’t be better, amidst the incredible garden beauty and winter splendor. 

Bike Around the Gardens 

Explore various destinations throughout the gardens on a quaint bicycle ride with your partner. Channel your adventurous side as you travel throughout the Callaway property and witness the awe-inspiring beauty of the wildflowers and delicate blossoms. Plenty of hidden gems and nature’s wonders await as you pedal through the breathtaking natural scenery in a fun and carefree manner. Bike rentals are also available to guarantee that your journey is filled with discovery, romance, and fun! 

Cherish Quality Time

With so many options to pick from, you can’t go wrong choosing Callaway Resort and Gardens as your ideal Valentine’s date destination.
