We really enjoyed driving through the light show. Although we are “young at heart” this drive through would be excellent for pre schoolers. The many different Christmas scenes with the beautiful Christmas music- some from The Nutcracker were most enjoyable. We stayed at the Lodge...More

Callaway Gardens Friday Farmer's Market (2 Replies)
For the past few years, Callaway Gardens has offered free admission to Robin Lake on Friday afternoons so that people can visit the Farmer's market. I believe admission was free after 5 pm but not before. As the season is about to start, I wondered if they have maintained this policy. On the website it states that there is a $5 per person admission fee - but they have stated so before and never actually charged anything. It certainly seems silly to charge people money to purchase...More

I've ready most of the posts and it seems the restaurants on the Callaway property are either not very good or over priced or both. how far do we have to drive to enjoy a nice glass of wine with a reasonable priced good meal?

We want to travel on a leisurly pace and get a taste of each place without trying to "see it all". Our initial thoughts are: 3 nights Charleston: Historic District, Magnolia Plantation, Middleton Place, Edmonston-Alston House, Aiken-Rhett , and leaving time for shopping. 2 nights Savannah - not fans of...More

Hi lirsun, Looks like a great trip... may I suggest a tiny amendment to your itinerary and throw one more destination in there as well. Add a night's stay between Charleston and Savannah in the historic community of Beaufort. There is plenty of history and charm in town, and there are some excellent bed and breakfasts. You can explore Beaufort in the morning and head out to Hunting Island State Park in the afternoon to head to the beach and discover the true natural splendor of the...More
