I thoroughly enjoyed the Orchid Daze exhibit and strolling around the gardens. As it is early in the year, I am sure I did not get the full glory of the gardens. Located within Piedmont Park made for a grand day of walking and enjoying nature at its finest.

If you love flora, you will love the ABG I had the afternoon off from a conference and I decided to chase my Canadian winter blues away with a stroll through peaceful gardens and greenhouses. I was not disappointed. The signage was clear, the flowers beautiful and the restaurants and gift shops were well appointed. And I got to sit... More

The lights were amazing. We came from Greenville SC and it was well worth the drive! We will be back next Christmas! There was so much to do. And so much to see. Great place for kids/families or just couples.

They keep it interesting by constantly changing the grounds. November/December is a great time to go to see the winter lights and installations. Buy tickets in advance for this time of year. Great for the summer too. Best to visit a couple of hours before sunset, walk the grounds (which will take a couple of hours if your're strolling). Grab... More

We have been to see the wonderful Topiary Exhibit and the beautiful Christmas lights. Both are lovely, and peaceful. I often take out of town visitors and everyone is always delighted.

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
