Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens

You all seemed to like the Ride on Pine Mountain, well let me show you what else can be found on Pine Mountain. We are so lucky here in the valley to have a place called Callaway Gardens. It is open year round. It is a beautiful place. In Spring, the azaleas bloom like no tomorrow. The entire place is filled with them. I guarantee you wont find azaleas like this anywhere else.  Then summer comes and the beach, yes a beach opens. The Masters Water Ski Championship is held here every year. There is the hot balloon extravaganza. The Victory Garden is filmed here. Some of the best golf around is played there. The FSU Flying Circus is there. Playgrounds, eating out of this world, a huge magnificent butterfly center just to name a few of the interesting things to see and do. A train for the kids to ride, rent bikes, and play some putt putt too.
But what I really want you to see is the Fantasy in Lights show. This is just one section. The music you are hearing in the video is actually what you hear as you drive through. The lights and the sounds are phenomenal. The really cool thing is you can drive in your car, you actually turn your lights off and or you can ride the open trolley. Since it is cold in December here in Georgia, it is an awesome adventure. You can buy hot cocoa, bring your blanket and ride the trolley. We chose the car since my 80 yr old mom was with us. The event runs from mid November to December 31st. There is so much to see. I thought Id tease you with this.  You feel like you are in snow heaven when driving through it. I have more videos that I will share over this holiday season. Each year it just keeps getting better and better. Ive had season passes for most of my adult life. I love it. If you are driving close to the western side of Georgia around the holidays, even if you are just passing through, it is well worth the trip or detour to stop in one night. There is a huge hotel and cabins available.
Just so you know, I have no connection to Callaway Gardens but this place is amazing. Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.
