Callaway Gardens, Atlanta
If you are needing a nice day trip from Atlanta and go to Callaway Gardens, make sure and save some time for the Butterfly Center---over 1000 butterflies from more than 50 species flutter around landing on you and all the flowers around in a weather-safe environment in the glass-enclosed conservatory. Take your camera and have a blast with all the color! The Gardens fees are adults $18, Seniors $15 and children $9, which gets you into all aspects of Callaway including the butterflies. 9 AM until either 5 or 6PM.
Thanks to Ida Cason, this is for the public to enjoy. There are 13,000 acres and many sections displaying the butterflies, birds and buildings. The operation does sell real estate as a primary/secondary function to keep the non profit trust going. They have trails and old log cabin, and other structures to enter and enjoy. Golfing and recreation is also part of the facility.
