Nice place to relax

It is quite big, so get ready to walk a lot. The variety of plants is very good. Sunday is the day of greatest affluence.

This Botanical Gardens is very beautiful all year around. Went recently for the Christmas lights. The grounds were decorated beautifully. If there was snow it would have been a winter wonderland. Very nice to walk around and see the displays. My favorite is the big green lawn with the musical bulbs.

This is a great activity to be enjoyed by gardeners and non gardeners alike as the setting is beautiful. The food is quite nice and there is always something special going on in the garden. Refreshing beverages and the cool orchid house are to be enjoyed.

I wish we lived in Atlanta because this would become part of our family's holiday tradition. The grounds are beautiful and the light displays were so incredibly perfect. We enjoyed a "grown up" hot cocoa while we walked the grounds and the kids enjoyed hot cider and hot cocoa. It was a little crowded but it wasn't bothersome. I would... More

WOW! both exhibits were amazing! We were able to visit on nice warm comfortable evenings this past November & December. We had previously been to the Chihuly exhibit when it was here before. It was wonderful then but the nighttime visit with the lights enhancing the glass was extremely enchanting. The various glass sculptures intermingled with the various plants and... More

It's a little expensive to get in, but this is a really deep botanical garden experience. The displays are very large and varied. When Chihuly was here, you could spend several hours finding all the glass in the garden. There is a wonderful restaurant in the garden. And you can come at night to a sort of cocktail reception to... More

The gardens are bwautiful. Its a great plave to go for family fun or just a date! The kids have more fun during the summer when the splash pads open. The art throughout is a very NICE elegant touch.

I have been multiple times, but this time I was able to walk through their light display for the first time. It was stunning. My children loved it also. We had dinner at Linton's and we are all hoping to make this a yearly tradition.

No matter what time of year I visit the gardens give me such a sense of peace and tranquility but it's especially true during the holidays. My husband and I have a membership and make a point of taking the grandchildren when they are in town. All ages will enjoy a walk through the Gardens.
