Absolutely stunning lights. We went on the last night of the Christmas lights. Only flaw was the crazy pricing so that even though we are members it was a significant upcharge and it was handled in a less than transparent way . Will still return as the gardens are truly lovely and the staff very helpful.

Great show, very detailed, but a bit pricy. It is a great thing to do for a family or date night. Once you have seen it once you may have to wait a couple years to see new things

We really enjoyed this visit. The lights exhibit was artfully designed, hopefully subsidized by Atlanta's power company, great for kids and adults alike. Since it was dark, we didn't get to see the plant and floral exhibits. This exhibit attracted a huge crowd. We had a so-so dinner at the Garden's restaurant. If you go, be sure to make reservations... More

We go here frequently and always try to take out of town visitors. There are beautiful gardens, as one would expect. Lots of indoor experiences with orchids, jungle and desert. Wonderful and different special exhibits throughout the year. Good place to eat, too. And in the summer, great ,usical concerts on the lawn. Good for couples, families with kids, and... More

The Atlanta Botanical Gardens are a wonderful place to visit year round. The gardens have something to offer each season, and the holiday lights are breathtaking! We have attended the Cocktails in the Garden and have enjoyed perusing various exhibits throughout the year for the past three years. A truly great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Atlanta is a beautiful city but these gardens are really a "must do". Superbly set out, many varied, interesting and often fun varieties of gardens and exhibits. We went there not long after arrival to "get the blood flowing" after our flight. Despite our tiredness it was very up-lifting. Thoroughly recommended.

I have been to several Botanical Gardens (South Carolina, California, etc.) and Atlanta by far is the best I have seen. Beautifully kept. Excellent displays. I am now a member here, I love it so much!

Having gone to the Botanical Garden in St Louis in my opinion the Atlanta BG is overrated! The ABG is much smaller and way too......pricey!

The Christmas/Holiday light displays throughout the gardens was magical, albeit cold when we went, but the fire pits, hot cocoa, cider, and smore fixins from concession stands help. Bundle up, and if possible, give yourself a couple of hours so you can really take it all in! Every inch of the place seemed to be wrapped in lights, and the... More

Loved this place. Been many times and only seems to get better every time. Make sure you get there early to get parking.
