We loved our visit to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens! Even my husband, and kids ages 19, 16, 13 and 12 enjoyed it and it was 100 degrees when we were there. The heat was a bit much but of course the Gardens had no control of that. The sculptures, the plants OH and my favorite ~ the Orchid house. Oh... More

I love the ABG. Although I don't manage to get there as often as I'd like to, it's a great place year-round. I love seeing the way plants can be used to beautify as well as to protect the environment. There's such a variety of types of plantings, that regardless of whether you're looking for native plants, colorful ones, plants... More

The gardens are amazing! All the hard work and detail that goes into making those sculptors is amazing. All of them are made out of plants. It definitely is worth seeing! It's a great place to unwind and relax as well.

This is easily one of the more beautiful botanical gardens on the east coast. Be warned, there is a parking fee, although it isn't outrageous. Admission is currently $18.95, but the grounds are large and there is a lot to see. If you are visiting in late summer, prepare for the Atlanta heat. There are some awesome artistic creations around... More

What a wonderful afternoon! We strolled through the Atlanta Botanical Garden - and what a beautiful place! Everything is kept so well - so beautifully manicured - and the large plant sculptures are not only amazing, but incredibly beautiful! This would be a place to visit again - most definitely!

This was pretty. It would have been prettier in the spring, I think. The orchid house was very fragrant and beautiful. The topiaries and such were different from others I have seen. Definitely a 2 hour walk to see it all. After you park your car, turn right out of the parking garage to get to the gardens.

Such a beautiful botanical garden with so many sculptures and water features, it's just gorgeous everywhere you look. There is an open air kitchen area where it appears they have cocktail parties and cooking demos. I would go all the time if I lived in Atlanta.

I used to live in the city and went here regularly- loved all their rotating exhibits, they are always fun and interesting. I was in the city for a night with my husband and a few long-time friends and we decided to go out to the Botanical Gardens night walk thing (6-10pm). We paid our $20 a person, plus our... More

A nice way to spend a few hours...walking thru the exhibits and gardens. It's laid out very nicely...followed the guides instructions on following path. What can I say...the ladies loved it...I'd rather sit and have a beer...too hot on the day we went. I
