We just went to the Garden of Lights at the Botanical Gardens, and it was fantastic! We took our 3 children and we all loved it. Although it would have been nice if it had been just my husband and me because then we could have sat by the fire and enjoyed some cocktails while listening to Christmas music. It... More

We are a couple in our early 60s and well traveled. This was our first visit to ABG and it was for their Christmas lights "adventure." 1. They have a large parking garage but parking is limited due to many visitors. $10 for a single vehicle but only $5 if you have 4 or more people. (Does that include children?... More

please, this event should have a better handle on how to direct traffic flow! Traffic in is pitifully handle by traffic guards, and only 1 gate open for exit! Any joy experienced by lights were totally obliterated by ridiculous exit plan. Lord help all if any disaster should occur:-(

We have been twice to this event on weekday nights. Tried Black Friday evening arriving at 6:30 pm. But the parking lot was full and the Piedmont Park parking lot was full. We are older and not up to driving the side streets of midtown in the dark to try to find a parking place and then having a long... More

Wonderful gardens with lots of incredible events. However, it IS pricey! Great for spending an entire day and evening there, and an excellent place for family outings, or for couples.

We have gone to the light show at the botanical gardens every year since they started (about 4-5 years now). Each year they add more things and we are always excited to see the new additions. As expected, this year was even more beautiful than last. One criticism was the music for the center dancing bulbs on the main lawn.... More

The Christmas lights are gorgeous and we'll worth the $$. We went at 6:30 and stayed 1 1/2 hours. Pleasantly surprised not crazy crowded. Cocktails, spiked coffee, cider and hot chocolate for sale everywhere. Also a s'more station. Nice miniature trains set up too.

Came to the garden during a 4 day visit to Atlanta. We visited in the evening to see the Christmas light display, and my wife and I were glad we came. We walked the gardens before and after sunset to see the best of both worlds here. There was a station for smores and 2 fire pits, and the ingredients... More

There is always something wonderful to see at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, depending on the time of year. My favorite times are when the flowers are in bloom in late spring and for the winter lights. But the gardens are varied and well maintained to include indoor foliage, so it's always worth the trip. Go when you can take some... More
