We did the Galaxy of lights around Christmas time. It was beautiful and only $20 per car. We go every year.

The Galaxy of Lights was the most beautiful and original display our family had ever seen. We were a caravan since we had 8 family members. Our 3 year old great grandson was thrilled and the rest of us just amazed by the hundreds of unique characters and themes presented. Bravo to the artists and technicians who created this wonderland.... More

While visiting relatives, we went to the Galaxy of Lights Christmas display. We have been to a lot of these kind of lighting displays including Callaway Gardens, Stone Mountain and others. The GoL is the most expansive, interesting and fun of them all. The reserved FM station with Christmas music is a bonus. You can't go wrong. It was fu.... More

So glad we added this side trip to our recent trip to Huntsville on Chtistmas day. All ages loved it. The volunteers did a terrific job with music. We lost count of the number of displays ;it was first rate. A plus was the nearness to 565..

It was great! We went on 12/25/14, and it costs $20 per car. You drive through a path of light displays sponsored by local businesses. It was beautiful!

I've enjoyed the gardens by myself, and as a couple. It's a beautiful garden with plenty to see year round. The Christmas lights are always a hit too!

We decided to drive through the Galaxy of Lights on Saturday, December 13th. While the displays from years before as well as the new displays were very pleasing to the eye, we all felt that the redirection for the carline lacked lit scenes. At the speed the vehicles were going, we spent the first ten minutes after we paid without... More
