This is a great place to visit any time of year. If you live in Atlanta, or close, I would recommend a membership as you can visit throughout the year. The christmas lights are unbelievable and the plants and follows through out the year are wonderful.

The Christmas show is one of a kind. I have been to it for several years in a row and it is always worth it. Fun for families. The gardens also do a cool scare crow exhibit in the fall and have craft beer and cheese nights. The gardens have several concerts per year with notable people. I am a... More

We've attended several times during the holidays for an evening stroll through the gardens to see the spectacular lighting displays that they install. Both kids and adults will truly enjoy it! One of the highlights for me are the synchronized lighting-to-music on the lawn in front of the tropical greenhouse. I can also highly recommend the on-site restaurant for its... More

We live in Atlanta and have visited on several occasions. I enjoy the quiet atmosphere and the relaxing walks through the nature trails. The layout is easy to follow and you do not feel rushed. There are areas to rest and vendors along the way if you want a refreshment. I recommend going on a nice sunny day to enjoy... More

One thing the Atlanta Botanical Garden does very well is keep visitors coming back for more. Whether it is works from internationally internationally renowned artists or special holiday lights and decorations, there is always a reason to come back again and again. Furthermore, the Garden is on a hill that provides visitors with an excellent view of downtown Atlanta. However,... More

The Botanical Garden is composed of a number of smaller themed gardens. Each contains different landscapes to display a variety of plants. Near the entrance are formal gardens, such as the Japanese garden and the rose garden. Two woodland areas, the 5 acres, Upper Woodland and the 10 acres Storza Woods feature large trees and shade-loving flowers and undergrowth. Also,... More

The garden is on the north end of Piedmont park. I looked forward to visiting in early April when Atlanta is in full bloom. Unfortunately, I would say the best part is the orchid collection. Other than that, the gardens are nothing too impressive- as a lay person I think you can see more beautiful gardens walking the historic neighborhoods... More

The Garden is undoubtedly better come spring, but we had a lovely day in late January. The orchid house is wonderful as are the ground in general including the Chihuly glass sculpture. The canopy walkway is amazing. And don't miss the Mother Earth, a sculpture made entirely of plants which was impressive enough in January but must be stunning when... More
