Places to Explore

During your stay at Callaway Gardens Resort, you’ll enjoy many places to explore, including Callaway Brothers Azalea Bowl. This attraction is a beautiful spot to stroll in any season. The grounds are a 40-acre garden that’s home to more than 3,000 native and hybrid azaleas that transform into exquisite pinks, reds, whites, and lavenders each spring. Callaway Brothers Azalea Bowl also includes some 2,000 trees and shrubs and a breathtaking gazebo that overlooks Falls Creek Lake.

Day Butterfly Center

Ever visited a tropical butterfly conservatory? Well, now is your chance. Don’t miss the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center during your stay and see some 1,000 butterflies flutter about freely. This glass-enclosed environment houses a variety of tropical plants that nourish the butterflies.

Birds of Prey

To become one with nature, you’ve got to understand and appreciate it. The Callaway Discovery Center is the perfect opportunity to do this. The Resort at Callaway Gardens Birds of Prey program is a unique experience that’s presented with permission from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The program has educated more than 1 million visitors on man’s effect on raptors and other types of wildlife since it began in 2000. The creatures featured in this habitat cannot be released back into the wild because of injury or an unnatural association with humans called imprinting. Check out the show schedule and make this program a stop on your itinerary.


If leisurely recreation is more your speed, then check out all the many options at Callaway Gardens Resort. Options include golf, tennis, fishing and boating, bicycling, and plenty of natural trails. The seven-mile Discovery Bike Trail winds through the property and provides the perfect setting for a bike ride at sunset. Or maybe you prefer to go by foot. Foot trails offer plenty of options for casual walkers or avid hikers.

Hitting the Beach

You don’t have to drive all the way to the coast to find sandy beaches. Callaway Gardens Resort admission includes access to Robin Lake Beach. By purchasing an annual pass, you can visit repeatedly throughout the year and even bring five guests with you each time you visit. Beach activities include everything from swimming and sunbathing to checkers sets and table tennis. Be sure you to leave time for plenty of beach relaxation during your stay.

Gone Geocaching

And who doesn’t want to find treasure on vacation? Geocaching at Callaway Gardens Resort enables guests to become part of a real-world treasure hunt. There are more than 40 caches on the entire 2,500-acre property, and who knows? You may even find a little something to help pay for your trip along the way.
