Spring 2015 Issue | Callaway Gardens, Georgia

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.

~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

Out of the cold, dark days of winter, the emergence of spring often happens subtly, with gradually warming temperatures, tiny buds appearing on trees and bits of green peeking out of the ground from gardens and flower beds. Then suddenly, it may seem like the earth has awakened, and the days are filled with sunshine, blue skies, green grass and flowers blooming everywhere.

For our Spring 2015 issue of RTX Traveler Magazine, we chose a destination that absolutely shines during this particular season. Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia, is famous for its many blooms and gardens, some of which flourish year-round, but are unmatched in spring. In addition to the gorgeous scenery, Callaway Gardens and the surrounding area of Pine Mountain offer plenty of activities and attractions that will keep the whole family occupied. Experience Southern hospitality at its best and reconnect with nature with a visit to this unique, family-friendly RTX vacation destination.

We picked out a few things we love about Callaway Gardens and found other fantastic RTX destinations that can offer similar experiences. Read about where to go for zip lining adventures, spectacular holiday light shows and hot air balloon festivals. Find out about our favorite places for lakeside adventures, and see where past presidents loved to vacation. Check out the printed version of this issue for updated information about member benefits including new features on our website.

We hope you enjoy this Spring 2015 issue of RTX Traveler Magazine.
