With summer break winding down for many students, countless parents are getting in that last hurrah before the new school year swings into full gear. For couples looking for an escape that can deliver on recreation and relaxation, Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia, makes for a quick getaway from the metropolitan Atlanta area.
At Callaway Gardens, parents can leave the routine behind by taking a scenic stroll along the property’s walking trails or by taking a more active approach on Callaway’s hiking and biking trails.
Callaway’s inland white sand beach, Robin Lake Beach, adds some splash to your fun in the sun with water tubing and other activities. The beach also includes Aqua Island that allows for racing across twisting bridges and fun on large trampolines or inflatable mountains. You rarely can get enough time in a private cabana, and you’ll have a chance at soaking in as much of that experience before a few rounds of mini golf or some volleyball play.
For even more activity, jump on a cruiser and navigate around Callaway, including a visit to the property’s Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center, a glass-enclosed conservatory that’s home to more than 1,000 butterflies. It’s fun — as long as you pack some patience — to try for the chance for one of the tropical beauties to land in your hand.
Relaxing can’t get much better than a spa massage — and at The Spa at Callaway Gardens, it can take a romantic turn when you make it a Massage TWO Remember 50-minute experience for couples.
Finally, round out your day with the destination sure to serve up relaxation in The Lodge & Spa at Callaway Gardens. Balcony views of the lake, gardens, and woodlands give you reason to settle in overnight or just some wind down time.
It’s all yours to do as you wish, before the day-to-day gets a shot to pull you away — that is, of course, until your next escape.
