    As you explore, make your way to the Atlanta Botanical Garden. If you visit before October 29 don’t miss “The Curious Garden” during an afternoon.

    Interesting exhibits. Relaxing atmosphere.

    The botanical garden is the best! Worth to see!
  • The Ritz-Carlton
    View orchids in new and exciting way at the Atlanta Botanical Garden during “Orchid Daze.” Visit the exhibit at night for a romantic date night.

    The holiday garden lights are sensational, but I'm not sure if it's worth the full price ($30+). I recommend coming right at 9pm--they drop the price and you'll still have 2 full hours to explore.

    A great value for singles, as well as families. Good parking. Walkable. Beautiful. Enough horticultural depth for those who just look, the academic scientists, and the designers.

    Not sure how they get away with charging $20.47 (with tax) on the off season. There were so many signs saying come May. It was still pretty but probably not worth the cost - at least in March!

    This place sucked. They only let us see half the park. It was a huge waste of $$. Seeing the lights in my neighborhood would have been more fun. Leaving the parking deck was dangerous.

    When attending the after hours events in the garden it is smart to bring a flash light as the paths are not well lit. Recently attended the pumpkin carving event and was shocked by the safety issues.
