I experienced serious health challenges over the past 24 months and when I was strong enough and able to venture outside one of the first places I visited was the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I had been here many times before with friends, family and groups of youngster but never by myself or in search of respite and solace. The Botanical... More

We didn't get to see this place during the day time but we went for the Christmas Light display. It was so pretty. We are from Tampa and my husband wants to come back so we can see it during the day. There were beverage stations placed through out (probably only due to the special light displays) but it was... More

We had a great time viewing the gardens and all the spectacular exhibits that the staff created. The creativity is amazing and wonderful to see. We really enjoyed the sites.

A fun place to visit! The topiary figures are very well made. The brochures handed out at the entrance are great for guiding one around the rather extensive garden. We went at night, which was nice, but I think we would have appreciated it more during the daytime (under better lighting). Rather expensive!

Super little trip and gorgeous holiday lighting. We really loved walking around, enjoying the weather and taking tons of photos. Dusk is best if you want the light to turn out well.

We visited at night, for an International Cheese Festival, and so we had a different experience than if we had walked around during daylight hours. The grounds are gorgeous and very well maintained. We were provided excellent help from the staff and overall, completely enjoyed our time there. We will return and visit again, when we have an entire day... More

On a recent visit to Atlanta to see a football game and a basketball game, we set aside some time on Saturday night to visit the Atlanta Botanical Garden to see the holiday offering, Garden Lights. It was simply breathtaking and magical. The walking paths that lead through the gardens are gently illuminated, and many of the specimen trees and... More

Always delights. Exhibits Change frequently. The orchid house is a favorite. There is a children's section where they can touch and smell.

These gardens are truly lovely both for a nature walk and for those more seriously interested in learning about plants. For the $18.95 admission price, you will see a diverse selection of plants ranging from rock and pond plantings to orchids and naturalized southern landscapes to areas focused on children and rain forest/desert environments in the conservatory - all accessible...
