Vacation Ideas for Your Fall Break

Ask someone what the best part of the summer is, and you might get a lot of different answers. Whether it’s swimming in the pool, getting out on the golf course, relaxing outside on long nights or taking a long road trip, there are a lot of fun things about the summer. But there’s one part of it that almost nobody likes: the heat.

As great as the summers are in Georgia, the heat can make them almost unbearable on particularly warm days. When temperatures get near 100 degrees, it’s tough to build the desire to do much of anything. But in the fall, Georgia becomes one of the most pleasant places in the country to spend outdoors — and that’s when it’s time to make a weekend visit to Callaway Resort & Gardens.

As fall breaks become more common in Georgia, more families are looking for something to do that lets them enjoy each other’s company, get out and use some energy, reduce stress and make some memories during their time away from school. One of the Callaway Resort & Gardens weekend packages near Atlanta, GA, can be a perfect way to check all of those boxes at once. Here are some great ideas for things to do on your visit!

Outdoor Recreation Options

Experience the outdoors with the many recreational options at Callaway Resort & Gardens. For your adventurous side, TreeTop Adventure and Ziplining obstacle course is a great choice. Or embrace your outdoorsy side, by taking a hike or bike ride around our 2,500-acres trail. Do you have a competitive side? Get your game on at the tennis court. No matter what you are looking for, we have something for everyone!

Get on the Course

One of the best things about taking a weekend getaway in Georgia is the ability to take a few hours and hit the golf course for a round or two. At Callaway Resort & Gardens, you’ll have two fantastic courses competing for your attention. If you’re in the mood for one of the most beautiful courses you’ll ever play anywhere, the Lake View course is a perfect choice. You’ll get a fantastic sight every time you walk to your next shot, with nine water holes providing both a perfect backdrop and a bit of a challenge to avoid losing your ball!

Or, you can play where the pros once did on the Mountain View course. Fairways are a bit tighter here, so if you’re looking for a challenge on your drives, this is the course for you!

Have a Spa Day

There’s no way around it: the pressures of life are going to add up quickly over time. When they do, it’s important to take care of yourself and give your body some relaxing treatments to help you get both body and mind back on track. Try a couples’ massage with your spouse, or treat yourself to a full day of relaxation!

Relax and Unwind

The main point of fall break is to simply get away from it all, and a weekend stay in a Deluxe Villa is a perfect way for your family to do exactly that. With multiple bedrooms, you’ll have space for yourselves, the ability to do what you want on your schedule and the choice to do nothing if you’d like to just take it easy for a while.

When you select a cottage or villa for your weekend packages near Atlanta GA, you’ll have the flexibility to make sure everyone gets the most out of their fall break, leaving you refreshed and ready to go when you get home. Book your Callaway Resort & Gardens weekend getaway today!
