Even in the winter, the gardens were amazing. The volunteers who guided our tours were very knowledgeable and appeared to genuinely enjoy their job.

Especially enjoyable to walk the pathways with young children . Feel excitement and anticipation in the air. Bright stars in the night shy and trees ablaze. Blessed with a warm December night. If in Atlanta at Christmass time is is a must. Very enjoyable and well managed

The Atlanta Botanical Garden has become a real world class attraction from its very modest start. Originally located on a small chunk of land on the edge of Piedmont Park, it has expanded through the foresight of many supporters and planners. It now contains a large conservatory, formal gardens, water features, and walkways through the forest and different botanical regimes.... More

As special as the gardens are during the day, they are even more beautiful draped in Christmas lights. We always love the gardens and this year decided to go during the holidays. We got there early so there was plenty of parking, around 5:30. We wandered around until it began to get dark, and it was magical! Our 11 year... More

The holiday lights in December are wonderful. I recommend bundling up and going to this next winter. There are different zones of lights, some choreographed to music. There are hot drinks and adult beverages for sale. There is pay parking (10 bucks per car this year) and you can get tickets in advance or day of at the event.

The winter lighting and programs for little kids are very family friendly. We enjoyed the magical lightings however the lines were long. Buy your tickets in advance but you still have to be in line to get in. Kids enjoyed the smores and the garden angles during the walk.

I went to the gardens on New Years Night and it was absolutely beautiful. This year the lights were even better than years past. The creativity that goes into this display is amazing. Even the orchid house was decorated. No detail was overlooked. The paths were easy to navigate and the holiday themed refreshments were done just right. If you... More

I saw the night lights and it was so beautiful! The only thing I didn't like was an extra tax at the entrance that wasn't listed online.
