Georgia is projected to have a rainy winter, so the guaranteed way to lift your spirits is by indulging in as many Christmas festivities as possible. You'll get your winter wonderland fix at one Georgia light show, which has been world-ranked as one of the best shows in the entire world. Callaway Gardens is hosting the ultimate Christmas light show in Georgia where you can even spend the night.
Fantasy in Lights has been featured in National Geographic as one of the top 10 Christmas light shows, so it should be your first stop during the holiday season. The entire resort is decked out in lights, ribbons, synthetic "snow" (because, Georgia) and a crazy amount of ornaments.
You can walk, ride in a car, or bike through 8 million lights that illuminate the sky. The open-air trolley through the park is also an option, where you'll be surrounded by fellow Christmas lovers.
If you're feeling Buddy the Elf-level exciteent, you can upgrade your experience by purchasing an overnight package. That dreamy getaway includes admission to the park to access all other amenities, admission to Fantasy In Lights, and overnight accommodations in an exclusive villa or lodge.
In total, you'll be able to explore 25,000 acres of pure magic that includes a Christmas Village. The adorable village is home to all the hot cocoa and pastries you need to keep your spirits lifted.
If you buy your ticket from now until the end of October, you can save 15% off your order. Tickets start at $21 and up before the discount, so you'll really luck out on an affordable experience.
