Day 2 – Biblical History Center – Guided Tour & Biblical Meal – Free Time at Callaway Gardens
This morning, visit the nearby Biblical History Center and explore 2000 years of history. Meet your guide for a tour of the archaeological replica garden where full-scale reconstructions of structures relevant to daily life in Biblical times bring history to life. Four areas of ancient life are represented in the Archaeological Replica Garden: Life of the Shepherd, Life of the Farmer, Life of the Village, and Roman Theater and Market Street. This tour will leave you with a new understanding of life in Old and New Testament times.
Following the tour, lunch is a Biblical Meal, a four-course meal consisting of 15 different food items, including soup, salad, fruit, main course, dessert and all beverages (grape juice or water). Your guide will explain ancient meal practices including Passover and the Last Supper, and the setting of the table for reconciliation. All of this will be done in the 1st century-style dining rooms, at triclinium-esque tables.
The Biblical History Center is a great place to visit any time of the year, but November 1- December 23, you can witness the history of the first Christmas during the Manger Tours.

Day 3 – Roosevelt Little White House – Depart for Home
After breakfast, stop in Warm Spring, GA for a tour of FDR’s Little White House. Franklin Delano Roosevelt built the Little White House in 1932 while governor of New York, prior to being inaugurated as president in 1933. He first came to Warm Springs in 1924 hoping to find a cure for the infantile paralysis (polio) that had struck him in 1921. Swimming in the 88-degree, buoyant spring waters brought him no miracle cure, but it did bring improvement. Visitors can tour FDR’s home, which has been carefully preserved very much as he left it, the servants and guest quarters, and the nearby pools complex that first brought the future president to Warm Springs.
Following the tour, depart for home. (B)
