You'll find this article in the gift guide by CLICKING HERE, but since it is our grand prize, I wanted to make sure it got some extra attention!
Callaway Gardens is a spectacular 13,000 acres of beautiful Georgia countryside in the Appalachian Mountains. Home of the world's largest azalea display, one of North America's biggest butterfly conservatories, and magnificent vegetable garden where PBS' "The Victory Garden" is filmed, this Georgia retreat is the perfect destination for family vacations or romantic getaways.
Chase butterflies in the enclosed conservatory, get personal with birds of prey at an outdoor free-flight show, or soak up the Georgia sunshine on a white sand beach. With outdoor activities like golf, tennis, bicycling, hiking, and more, the family fun never ends! And at just over an hour from Atlanta, it's a perfect weekend destination.
Callaway Gardens offers a variety of lodging options that cater to your needs and experience including The Mountain Creek Inn, The Southern Pine Cottages, Mountain Creek Villas and The Lodge at Callaway Gardens (now part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection). When we visited Callaway Gardens with our boys, we stayed in a cottage - and I wouldn't have had it any other way! There are 155 two-bedroom cottages, absolutely perfect for a family, with spacious living and dining areas, fireplaces, screened porches and decks. CLICK HERE to take a virtual tour!
Winter is a wonderful time to escape and relax at Calloway Gardens. Roam the property and gardens at your leisure, enjoy the Butterfly Center and The Birds of Prey Show too! There's also an indoor pool if your kids are dying for a swim! CLICK HERE for a full list of things to do.
(We also discovered the Wild Animal Safari just down the road from the entrance to Callaway Gardens. If you are making a trip to Pine Mountain, this is also a must see! Just one word of warning - rent the van! DO NOT drive your own car).
The winter months can creep by, and a family weekend escape can be a wonderful break from routine. That's why Smyrna Vinings Marietta and Buckhead Brookhaven Macaroni Kid are giving away (many thanks to Callaway Gardens) a two-night stay in a two-bedroom Southern Pine Cottage for one lucky subscriber. Valid January 1, 2012 - March 31, 2012 (subject to availability). Includes Gardens' Admission. Value of prize is more than $600!
