Thank you for your kind post and words. The azaleas were amazingly early this year and then bit by freezing temperatures. We do hope that you will choose to visit again in the future. As a non-profit organization, we appreciate your patronage.

I don't know about motorized tours, but I believe you can rent a golf cart to get around. There are some benches, but most of the trails are paved with only a few places to stop and sit. I would call Callaway Gardens for... More
