I live in Atlanta and have visited the Atlanta Botanical Garden 4 times in the last 2 years. I came twice with my husband, once with friends, and one time with my mother who was visiting from California. Every visit was lovely and enjoyable. The visit with my mother was in the spring and was a treat for her since... More

I am iffy about Botanical Gardens when I visit other cities. But this one is really nice - and uncomplicated. It's right next to Piedmont Park (it's actually in the park) and beautiful Ansley Park (one of the old, beautiful in-town neighborhoods. Both are worth are look. Kids will really enjoy the Garden, but the place is made for everyone... More

The Atlanta Botanical Garden is always changing up their attractions. Visiting yesterday, there was a profusion of tulips blooming in pink, red, yellow, and other colors. After a particularly long and harsh winter (by Atlanta standards); it was fantastic to see spring blooming again. Also, the orchids are in bloom in many varied colors. I've always heard that orchids are... More

My boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to Atlanta. We both work third shift so we wanted to do something outside to enjoy the perfect weather. The botanical gardens were exactly what we needed. Everything was blooming and despite everyone having the same idea of enjoying the gardens we made it through with little stress and plenty of time... More

Go for the Christmas lights. You will be impressed. There is music, hot chocolate and sometimes special things going on.

We visited in early spring, so not everything was blooming, but had a nice time walking around enjoying the nice weather. Had very nice format to view everthing.

Far surpassed my expectation! Atlanta Botanical Gardens was on the top of my "to do" list while I was recently in Atlanta for a few days. Truly, this is not to be missed! The conservatory is vast and is worth the trip alone. I live in S. Florida and feel that it is a beautiful representation of tropical vegetation, so... More

This is a fantastic place to visit! Each season offers something new and exciting. The plantings are gorgeous and the exhibits are world class. Atlanta Botanical Garden has brought in amazing artist exhibits from Chihuly and Moore to Montreal's famous Mosaiculture. The lights at Christmas are magical! From Spring tulips, daffodils and azaleas to winter camellias if you love nature... More
