Tips for Families

Check their seasonal events. In the fall they have a fun scarecrows in the garden and train at Christmas. They also offer classes for kids and adults. Leave the kids at home and come out for the Cocktails in the Garden or a summer concert. The outdoor kitchen is a perfect place to enjoy an adult beverage.

Garden Lights show rocks my socks off. At a hefty price of $18.50, you get to walk around the garden and see colors as far as the eye can see, all twinkling and turning. Its a great time to walk around, take tons of pictures and absorb the feeling of winter in the air. Be prepared for massive crowds and slow walking as it can get VERY crowded in the 6-7pm time frame, so plan accordingly.

There are signs saying not to eat the plants in the edible garden, but Asians disregard we tried the apples and the green peppers. Young children will really enjoy a day at the gardens. (I'm in my early 20s and I had a blast!) I also went to see their Christmas light show and was very disappointed. Tickets were about $20 for adults. The best part was the entrance and you could see that from the street with...

Atlanta Botanical Garden does a stunning job of weaving artworks and decorations among plants. My first visit was for Chihuly's glass art exhibit many years ago, and it was one of the most memorable art exhibits I've ever seen (and I've been to many, many art exhibits and museums all over). I've been a fan since. I saw the magical transformation of the gardens once more when I went in for the Holiday Lights. It was their first year doing it, and I'd definitely recommend it for families, couples, anyone who wants to get in the groove of holidays!! The lights were decorated beautifully around and on the plants. The winding walkway with lanterns along the side, the tiptoe through canopy walk with Christmas ligh...

We took our grand daughter to see Santa yesterday. What a awesome Santa they had. And the fact we could take our own pictures without the hassle of them trying to sell us their own pics was a huge bonus. We got there after the Pupp...
