  • $21.95 for adults. There's discount for senior and children but no discount for students. I believe if you order tickets online before visiting it would be cheaper. Parking charges ~$5-8 if you plan a 2-3 hr trip. We spend 2.5 hrs in it and enjoyed it a lot. Most area is open air but much shade. Definitely recommend for tourists. It allows no outside food or beverages but no one gonna check your bag so snacks and water is fine.
  • At first was shocked at the $21 entry fee but hot damn it was worth it. Beautiful. Art installation of florescent colored trees and other objects was subtle and complimented the garden awesomely. Lots of cool trees and plants. WAY bigger than I excpected. Kids splash zone was fun for the kiddos. Got here early at 10am and left at 2pm. Lots of shade so you won't be exposed to the harsh sun the entire time. Rain forest section was VERY cool. It just kept going. Had a great time.
  • Absolutely Gorgeous! So peaceful. If I was lived closer I'd have an annual pass! This is one venue you can visit time and time again and be mesmerized by beauty! I love the incorporation of art...I like to call it "Exhibit meets Horticulture". Honestly it's quite magical. It naturally offers a new excitement to enjoy each season. So don't just go once...go over and over and over again to see what's in bloom. For me this is one of the top... if not the top attraction in Atlanta!
  • Pros: Lovely place to visit for the day and worth the ticket price. Vast array of plants and flowers from varying climates. The special exhibits can be a nice touch of modern architecture that compliment the gardens. There are beverages available for purchase before you start the skywalk (including wine). Cons: There was a wedding taking place in the rose garden so we couldn't tour that part of the garden or anywhere near the venue used for the reception. This should have been mentioned up front or there should have been a discount of some sort as the rose garden is easily the prettiest part of the gardens. The food/beverages and gift shop are very highly priced.
  • I had to move to Atlanta 2 years back and people had been recommending this place often and finally 2 weeks before I had a chance this beautiful amazing place From the moment I took the cut to entrance of the garden road I started loving this place . I consider myself an outdoor guy. It's a big garden and u need to do a lot of walking. Every inch of the place I loved it. U can just forget ur busy life and relax under tree canopies and beautiful flora and fauna . Came to this place vey early in the morning when the gardens were open and we were out the garden only by 4pm. I brought a group of 5 adults and infant baby . Only downside with an infant baby in this place there is only one family friendly restroom . Other than that I had no complaints and everyone in the group enjoyed it

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
