Callaway Gardens, Pine Mountain

(3.8/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Created to protect native azalea species, Callaway Gardens has grown to include the world's largest man-made, white sand beach. An indoor conservatory protects its fluttering occupants in the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center. Azaleas thrive in the gardens and grow around memorials. Every summer the beach comes to life with the Florida State University Flying High Circus, which holds activities and shows with the lake as a backdrop.

  • I very much enjoyed our tome at Callaway. We stayed at the Inn, nothing to fancy and could use some cleaning around the grounds, but it was what I expected. Good hotel room. The Gardens were lovely. Just our pace. The Birds of Prey show was neat. The crown Jewel was the Day Butterfly Conservatory. We went there multiple times during our stay. It was a pure delight!
  • Lots of fun if timed right. The balloon festival is fun. The butterflies are awesome. The birds of prey show is super cool. The lake is packed with fun stuff to do but the water is not the cleanest. The discovery center is fun too but not giant. The trails are extensive and there are plenty of surprises on the grounds to explore. A little expensive.
  • Beautiful location. Plenty of fun things to do and great food! I would highly recommend renting a golf cart from the golf course to tour the gardens in. Easy parking and accessibility and you can't beat fresh air in your face. Really fun getting around that way and seeing the beautiful flowers, waters, and many other attractions.
  • Stayed at the mountain Creek Inn, the rooms are just like hotel rooms. Well taken care of. The gardens and the awesome butterfly conservatory is what will make me come back. Educational and a beautiful place to spend time with the family. It's well worth the visit. One last thing. Callaway gardens is huge! Don't think you can walk to everything, some mode of transportation will be needed.
  • The park is looking very run down and half of the attractions are now closed. Sadly this last visit of mine will be the last visit. Annual membership buys you the right to pay half price (which is the normal price) on special weekends like Labor Day, Christmas, etc. because now they charge you double on those days. Beware of the NO REFUND POLICY because you won't even have the pleasure of speaking with a manager to lodge a complaint, they will simply give you the 1-800 number and tell you to call during business hours. Of course they were happy to take my $100 during non business hours.
