  • I live in Canada and I feel a trip to Atlanta is not complete without a visit to the gardens. I love the feeling of being surrounded by the wonders of nature. The exhibits are spectacular -- The Chihuly exhibit was amazing. The staff are always so helpful and friendly. This is my third visit this year! If you have a camera this is the place to make it work for you. I love it.
  • Beautiful exhibits of all different styles. It surprisingly has a wonderful area for children which includes an edible garden, a little park, a pond, a water painting wall, and a beehive where you can see the bees making honey. They have shows for older kids and when we were there they had instruments out from around the world that the kids could play. I took a star off because the food options aren't great to begin with and when we tried to order the little stand we went to was out of a lot of items.
  • Simply beautiful! I have gone during a few different events such as garden lights in the fall/winter and when a lit of the flowers are blooming in the spring. The art combined with natures beauty is enough to be worth the trip; but then there is the enclosed rainforest area and orchard house, both amazing, and wow do the orchards smell beautiful!
  • We visited for Chuhily in the Garden. The art was absolutely beautiful. It wasn't too crowded and a bar is always a nice touch. One complaint though, it was too damn dark! There were hardly any lights on throughout the garden. Like literally 1 light for ever 100 feet. People had to use their phone lights just to navigate around.
  • Beautiful gardens. If you live in Atlanta, become a member. Also, it's a good parking garage for going to Piedmont Park if you're driving in. Finally, can't say enough about the event staff. Great place to have your wedding or smaller event.
