It is hard to believe that the Callaway Gardens were created in 1952 for the sole purpose of protecting the endangered flower shrub, azalea. Today this 13,000 acre (5,260 hectares) space is Georgia's prime tourist attraction drawing over 75,000 visitors annually. Gardens and flowers aside, the area is replete with nature trails, a man made sand beach, snack bars, a chapel, golf courses and a butterfly center. Another endearing sight is that of pet owners on their morning jogs with dogs in tow! One day may not suffice in these glorious gardens, so should you choose to extend your visit, accommodation facilities are also available for the entire family. Timings for various facilities within the premises vary, please check the website for more details.
I actually moved to Pine Mountain in 2005. I visit Callaway a couple of times a year. It is quiet, peaceful, it is where you can go to relax. No noise, no arguing, cursing. The streets pretty much roll up at 10:00 PM. It's wonderful. People are very friendly to friendly people.

Planned a wedding event here and had terrible experience with service, double billing and amenities. Beautiful place in the spring. Fun for kids at beach but even golfing event had problems. Be careful to check your bill when you leave. All of our guests were over billed.
I'm afraid to let the 'word get out' any further but can't help it�this place is amazing! Both peaceful and rejuvenating. Nature at it�s BEST! No noisy power boats in water areas! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! Pack your canoe and GO!
We really like the Fantasy in Lights at Christmas time. The butterfly center is also really neat for the kids. You can see all sorts of butterflies close up and even have them land on you. We have only been at Christmas time but still it is beautiful to walk the grounds. It must be even better in the spring when the flowers are blooming.
We stayed at the Mountain Creek Inn on Callaway property the first visit and it was reasonably priced, included a great buffet breakfast and tickets to the Fantasy in Lights. This visit we stayed in a cabin at Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park. The price was very low and the cabin was clean. Also, very close to Callaway Gardens.
