Celebrate Easter! This Weekend at Callaway Gardens

All weekend long, you can Celebrate Spring! and Celebrate Easter at the lovely Callaway Gardens.

Callaway Gardens is nestled in the beautiful town of Pine Mountain, Georgia. This beautiful place is full of wonderful activities every day of the year- hiking and bicycle trails, fishing, tennis, and golf facilities, a butterfly and horticulture center, and much, much more.

This is a special weekend at Callaway Gardens, though. In addition to the plethora of usual activities, there are a lot of special things going on as well. This weekend is known as Renewal in the Gardens and is the part of the Celebrate Spring! event at Callaway Gardens. This is a seemingly fitting name for Easter weekend.

Here are some of the festivities that you can look forward to:
