The holidays are here again and just as quickly as they have arrived, they will disappear. So why not enjoy the time with your family and friends in a relaxed setting at Callaway Gardens. Pack the kids, the holiday sweaters and yes don’t forget your red santa hats for the 90-minute drive from downtown Atlanta to this southern resort tucked away behind Pine Mountain. There’s so much to do…where should you start? It all depends on what type of troupe you have.
The ”I’m so glad it’s Christmas” troupe will enjoy the Fantasy in Lights display. Known for being the largest light show in the Southeast, this show will truly be a feast for the eyes. Over 2 million guests have been enjoying the Fantasy in Lights show since they began in 1992 and ever since then the cars keep coming. Including lighted toy soldiers from “The Nutcracker“, colorful Christmas trees and all can be seen in your own car or by the Jolly Trolley. There are several overnight packages if you want to take your time and enjoy the lights.
The “I need a girl’s night out” troupe can leave the kids with dad for an evening of sultry holiday jazz renditions, at the A Diva’s Christmas presented by the Serenbe Playhouse. Tickets include a delicious meal from the Prix Fixe menu ranging from Butternut Squash Bisque to Pumpkin Orzo Pasta. Need I mention the Purple Sweet Potato Creme’ Brulee for those still not convinced.
Last, but not least, the “Just get me out of the city” troupe will like to take a walk throught the Gardens. These include but are not limited to the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center, Overlook Azalea Garden and the various nature trails along the way. Don’t forget there’s golf, fishing and tennis for the sports fans.You won’t want to come back from this resort in nature and it will be a holiday season that your friends and family members will want to relive for years to come.
