If you're in Athens, and like plants and the outdoors, this is a nice experience not to be missed. Very educational, informative, and well-maintained in spite of the current water situation in Georgia, although the fountains were all turned off.

The Botanical Garden is not to be missed, regardless of the season. My daughter and I have taken many wonderful rambles there, even on drizzly days. It's a great place to let little ones get outside and explore and the various hiking trails through the woods are a nice way to beat the heat in the summer, thanks to all the shade.

The conservatory has a neat little winding trail through a collection of tropical plants, all well-marked.
