To kick off the 60th anniversary of Callaway Gardens in 2012, Callaway Gardens is providing free admission to all guests for 60 days. The free admission began January 1 and continues through February 29, 2012.
Since its opening on May 21, 1952, Callaway Gardens has welcomed millions of guests to enjoy beautiful flowers, delicious meals, fireworks, weddings, Easter Egg hunts, simple walks on a trail, PGA championship golf, Christmas memories, musical concerts, hot air balloons ride and much, much more.
It may be Winter but there are lots of fun things to do and see at Callaway Gardens right now, such as witnessing butterflies emerging and taking flight in the warm, tropical Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center; and exploring the beautiful John A. Sibley Horticultural Center with gorgeous floral displays. While visiting, get outdoors for a little exercise on one of the many walking trails or meander through the Gardens on the Discovery Bicycle Trail (bicycles are available for rent or bring your own). It’s amazing what wonders nature provides at this time of year. With free admission, it is also a great time to try out the new TreeTop Adventure aerial obstacle and zipline course.
Please note that special signs will be posted and different traffic routing will be established to direct guests to the Callaway Discovery Center upon arrival.
Every season provides a great reason to visit Callaway Gardens!
