Lots to see and do this time of year, without the crowds. Plenty of biking, and hiking to do. The grounds and facilities around Robin Lake need to be tended better this time of year. Lots of leaves still lying around, and somehow in the bathrooms. Same for the mini golf area, get a grounds crew too blow it out... More

You can experience Callaway Gardens year round! The property is in full bloom during spring and summer. The Fantasy In Lights at Christmas is a must!!! The Butterfly House is filled with beautiful butterflies and plants. Please take time to visit Callaway Gardens. You will not be disappointed. Great day trip!

We visit Callaway Gardens every year in December to enjoy Fantasy in Lights and the other activities in the Gardens. Usually we stay in the Villas where they have 1 - 4 bedrooms, each with their own bath. The units have living rooms (with fireplace), kitchen, and eating area. We take our extended family and ride the trolley through the... More

My husband and I went for our first trip here on Christmas Eve for the Fantasy in Lights show. I have zero complaints. The staff was friendly, the jolly trolley was soooo much fun to ride on, and the bathrooms were actually clean. I could ask for much more. If you have never been, it is a MUST. They have... More

I brought my little sister for an action filled adventure and got the time of my life! We bicycled to a butterfly farm, ziplined through an adventure, explored new restaurants, and enjoyed the Christmas lighting (0n accident.... they hadn't started the season yet so it was a welcome treat). It was such a pleasure to watch my cynical little sister... More

This event is a 20 year+ tradition for our family. I recommend taking your own vehicle throught the lights, as the weather is so unpredictable and we've never wanted to ride on the Jolly Trolly. There is so much to do beyond driving through the lights. Go early to enjoy the butterfly house, shopping in the tent, the birds of... More

Rode the Jolly Trolley thru the Light Show,Luckily it wasn't to cold the night we attended. The scenes were beautiful. Even tho it was crowded the trolley was away from cars on most of the route. Just wish we would have had more time to do the other attractions. Glad the rain held off until we were off the Trolley
