Beautiful day at the Botanical Gardens! I'd say give yourself a good 2 hours to tour this if with kids. The Kids garden is great but the only way to get to it is via a huge ramp right now and that was kind of a pain with 2 little kids. Otherwise there are so many great little areas to... More

Visiting the Bruce Munro Light exhibit is like visiting a magical forest. Please be advised that you must visit when it is completely dark to appreciate the lights. There are interesting light sculptures throughout the garden but the best light show is about half way across the canopy walk where millions (or it seems like millions) of lights in varying... More

The botanical gardens have been expanding over the past two years and now that their forest canopy is complete. It is a wonderful place to visit in the spring, fall and winter. Summer is little hot and muggy. Plan to spend a minimum of two hours here, unless you are visiting during the Friday "drinks in the garden" night -... More

Walking through the gardens is enchanting. Nature comes alive, the air smells good, and you know you are in the right place. The orchid house is amazing. I hear the new restaurant is excellent but we have not yet tried it.

The Botanical Gardens in Atlanta are a great place to see when visiting the city. Adjacent to Piedmont Park, the Gardens have an elaborate, elevated system of walkways that makes you feel like you are walking in the trees. Throughout the year the Gardens hosts musicians and art installations. During the holiday season, the Gardens are decorated with tons of... More

They are always doing something new. The light shows are great, as is the newly refurbished forest section. A great walk: we go whenever we are in town (and it is cool enough).

Who would have thought this beauty could be in the middle of a city?!?! This was one of the best attractions in Atlanta and we spent several hours here. They were setting up for an evening concert and we wanted to stay, but already had tickets for something else. We also wish we had been able to stay for the... More
