We came to see the lights, and we were not disappointed! They do a magnificent job with the decorations. You can even buy cocktails to walk around with. We will be back to check out other events for sure!

One of items on my "bucket list" has always been to visit the Gardens during the holidays. This year, visited the evening after, and yes it is beautiful. I understand, this is a non profit but did feel it was over priced and then pay to park? Come in city of Atlanta give the gouging a rest. At the very... More

It is our tradition to visit the gardens at Christmas-time. It never disappoints and is truly magical this time of year. My favorite parts are walking through the the outdoor LED lights, the Chihuly exhibit over the fountain and the color changing orbs set to the Christmas music!

The grounds here are beautiful and easy to navigate. Even in the winter, there was enough too see in a half day. We loved the orchid exhibit. Lots of volunteers around who were knowledgable and seemed to enjoy answering questions. The children's garden was cute. My only complaint is that I wish there was better identification of plants. It was... More

We did not arrive in time for their Valentine's celebration but if it was anything like their Christmas celebration it must have been wonderful! In December 2014 we visited for Christmas and their light and music show is still one of my favorite Christmas memories and living in NYC that is a well earned compliment. Plan your next Christmas time... More

Visited the gardens on a beautiful sunny day in February. Understanding that the flowers are not yet in bloom, my expectations weren't real high. Here's where they let me and every other customer that paid $22 for admission down: everything was shut down! The water features and fountains were completely drained and shut off. They even had the water fountains... More

A good friend surprised me with tickets to the Christmas in the Garden event. It was my first time to visit ABG. The meandering paths and unique light exhibits were fantastic- it's here I fell in love with Dale Chihuly glass masterpieces. My happy place.

My girlfriend and I visited to see the Orchid Daze event. The Orchids were beautiful. Being early February the gardens are not in full bloom but still were definitely beautiful

We've been ther for the Christmas lights and a general day visit in February. It's a quite good Botanical garden with a nice balance of inside and outside items. Until April the Garden will be showing off the Nation's largest permanent display of orchids. The outside walks "in the forests" are amazing even in the mid winter.
