Callaway Gardens, located in Pine Mountain, Georgia, covers 6,500 acres. It was begun in 1952 by Cason and Virginia Callaway to protect native azalea plants. Today there are a multitude of attractions, including an Overlook Garden, Vegetable Garden, Butterfly Center, Horticultural Center, and Pioneer Log Cabin.
The property is also the site of Robin Lake Beach (the world's largest man-made white sand beach) and Iceberg Island Floating Water Playground. Between the gardens, hiking trails, and water features, it's definitely a place where you can spend an entire day.
The gardens are open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Admission is $13.00 per adult and $6.50 per child.
