Such a great place to go around the holidays! I go every year with friends or a significant other. The lights are so beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous and my favorite is to go into the greenhouse. So fun!

We went on what I was afraid would be one of the most crowded days of the event - the day after Thanksgiving. It was crowded, but not unbearably so, plus we had a cold, rainy night, so some may have foregone their tickets and...More

The gardens are pretty year round but the main attraction this time of year is the lights. It sits directly next to Piedmont Park which is a beautiful huge park as well!
