Winter Getaway Ideas for the Adventure Lover

Given the warm climate and beautiful scenery of Georgia, during the winter months there’s only so long you can go without an outdoor adventure. Callaway Resort & Gardens offers a variety of outdoor activities specifically centered around the winter season, including overnight stays at luxury suites.

Overnight Stays

When the winter weather has been keeping you indoors most of the time, simply getting out and going somewhere besides work or home can make all the difference in the world. The Lodge Callaway Resort & Gardens offers 150 luxury guest rooms and suites surrounded by lush forestry and beautiful lakes. Each room is fully furnished and boasts views of the breathtaking scenery that surrounds the campus. Even if the weather is permitting of lengthy stays outdoors, staying overnight in a comfortable, classy suite can still feel like a getaway.

Outdoor Activities

Even during the winter, there’s still plenty to enjoy outdoors at Callaway Resort & Gardens. You can get in a round of golf with some friends or family. Even if you’re flying solo on the golf course, you’ll be surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills, breathtaking lakes and ponds, and luscious foliage. Depending on which part of winter you visit, you might be lucky enough to witness the early stages of flowers blooming, filling out the gardens.

Those who are more adventurous and seeking a more lively winter activity might enjoy the treetop zip line. Callaway Resort & Gardens has 10 different zip lines on site, ranging in length from 44 to 700 feet long. Many of these zip lines feature an in-air obstacle course, adding a challenge to your soaring. These challenges can include ladders, logs, discs, netting, and many other surprises.

Dining and Nightlife

Although Callaway Resort & Gardens is surrounded by gorgeous scenery, sometimes during winter it’s nice to cozy up indoors. Fortunately, there are numerous restaurants and bars on site that will make you feel as if you’re in a lively downtown area, but still with the cozy feel of a quaint, remote neighborhood

The restaurants on site at Callaway Resort & Gardens can fit any palate, ranging from fine dining to simple bar food. For fine dining, the Gardens Restaurant dishes up a wide array of unique dishes, featuring locally-grown ingredients, in an elegant atmosphere unlike your typical dining experience. For those who still want to enjoy the same southern staples Georgians have grown up with, the Country Kitchen serves up all the typical soul food classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Those who are looking for something a little different can enjoy seafood, soups, and a variety of other creative dishes in the Piedmont Dining Room.

Even when on vacation, some people still appreciate a good, old-fashioned bar for their nightlife, and crave pub food for dinner. Cason’s Tap Room not only offers up a variety of signature cocktails and a number of top-notch Georgia craft beers, but also the kind of bar comfort foods you crave, making for an excellent evening destination regardless of if you’re seeking dinner or a nightcap.

Even over the winter, it’s not difficult to find fun things to do in Georgia for family, friends, or a solo experience. Callaway Resort & Gardens has it all, book your stay now!
