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.

Easy to get to, lots of parking available. Visitors can self-guide, or use the services of a docent. I found the rainforest exhibit to be particularly interesting, as well as the butterfly atrium.

We took our large family group to enjoy the light display over the holidays at the ATL Botanical Garden. Arriving just after sunset offered great viewing of the colorful lights and great pictures too. Give yourself plenty of time to wander through the Garden and stop to warm yourself by the outdoor fires if necessary,

They have blossomed over the years in to a lovely Garden. Their special events are must see for all. They are constantly adding to their exhibits which makes it a worthwhile return trip. We are blessed to have such a lovely place in the city.

What a surprise to find the Atlanta Botanical Gardens! I lived in the suburbs for 10 years without visiting - and that was a miss. The gardens are beautifully laid out, with winding walkways and creative topiaries in addition to plenty of natural, native Georgia-Southeast botanicals. Take your whole family - all ages can enjoy this reasonably priced activity. For... More
