2/28/2017 – Spring is around the corner! Sunshine, exercise, and vacation may be the perfect recipe for curing winter blues. Easing the blues is easy when you visit Callaway Gardens near Atlanta. Many people who come here are finding some of the best deals for vacation, finding fresh air and blue skies. Here are some reasons why Callaway Gardens has the best bed and breakfast packages for all.
Bed, Bikes and Breakfast Package
With miles of the best bike trails in Atlanta, this getaway includes bicycle rentals, admission to Callaway Gardens and comfortable lodging. The 10-mile Discovery Bike Trail winds through wooded coves, sparkling lakes, and majestic pines at the Gardens, so guests can revel in the fresh air and grab some exercise. A 2005 Harvard study suggests exercise in bright lights improves mental health and social functioning. If the bike trail isn’t enough to get your blood really pumping, consider spending some time on one of Callaway Gardens’ 9 nature trails. Totaling more than 7 miles, hikers can bask in scenic views along the way, and commune with nature.
As an added bonus, being outside provides a ton of health benefits. Callaway Gardens offers several opportunities to spend time comfortably outside. From biking and hiking, to strolling through the gardens, golfing, or zip lining, soaking up the sun’s rays through outdoor activity can improve your health. Humans get 80 to 90 percent of vitamin D from sunlight, and that critical vitamin wards off heart attacks among other health benefits. That’s just one of natural sunlight’s healing powers.

Spending some time outdoors at Callaway Gardens and ditching your electronics during your weekend getaway can also help boost creativity.
