      We live 45 min. north of Callaway (in Newnan). They offer free admission for Jan/Feb every year, and to be honest, there’s not much to do there during those months. The big draw is the flowers, which don’t bloom until March. The butterfly house is nice, but that is about all my kids liked. We tried going on little hikes but it was freezing cold. It’s nice to visit, don’t get me wrong. Just don’t expect a lot to do unless it’s nice weather.

      • Erinn

        I have to agree Wendy… there isn’t too teribly much to do during these months. The Butterfly house is alwasy neat, and they offer a Birds of Prey show; however, the gardens are not in bloom and all is pretty quiet.

    • Heather

      Callaway is great! Check out their website to see what they are offering for the free months, I’m sure there will be something to do! This is in my neck of the woods! Great golf course too, but I’m sure that isn’t free!

    • hahaha…I have family that is there now (not during the free time…they dont believe in coupons…their loss…LOL) think we will just wait til it’s free…thanks for the update!! oh and I have a trip to plan for @ 15 women in my family to Savannah GA in October…please reply if you know of any good ideas or great deals that are going on during that time…mid Oct – mid nov—haven’t set an exact date yet…THANKS!!!

      • Jenny

        Just don’t do towards the end of October. They get a little rowdy for Octoberfest… we used to live there :)

    • Tamra

      This will make a great day trip for the family. Quiet time, butterflies and birds. I think we will have a great time. Thanks for the info.

    • Jackie

      Wow! This is such a great idea, i just passed the info along to my husband. So, who knows maybe we will take our 4yr. old son to see the butterflies and maybe watch whatever shows they have. Thanks, for the info!

    • sarah

      This is a really awesome deal, we live really close!!

    • Callaway is fantastic – my family has been going there for years (including the dead of winter)! True, it’s very low key in the winter, but after the holidays, isn’t that what we can all use? Get to Pine Mountain in the morning and enjoy breakfast at the Country Kitchen, make sure to pick up a jar of Muscadine Preserves (a local specialty) before leaving for the Gardens. After spending a few hours at the Gardens, you can go down to the tiny strip of shopping in “downtown” Pine Mountain and visit a few unique shops. Lunch or afternoon tea at Rose’s Cottage is always nice. This area is my family’s favorite after the holiday’s “hang out.” We usually rent a local cabin, sit in front of the fire, continue to eat too much, and enjoy the company of friends and each other. Attached is a link to the area’s tourism association.
