Garden Lights, Holiday Nights at the Atlanta Botanical Garden is my favorite holiday tradition in-the-making. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit this spectacular Atlanta attraction with my family this year. There are over 1 million - yes, MILLION - energy-efficient LED lights twinkling, shining, and beguiling guests throughout the pathways of the Atlanta Botanical Garden. To say that I was immediately blown away by the beautiful lights upon arrival is an understatement.
Along the path, we found carolers singing our favorite Christmas carols, which provided a beautiful soundtrack for the evening's events. More holiday music delighted us by the small outdoor bar, where Danger and a few of her friends twirled and shimmied under the snowflake-shaped spotlight.
While all of the lights were beautiful, I thought that the living sculptures were especially stunning decked out in their wintry best. Take a peek:
The children seemed to enjoy the miniature train set quite a bit. The winding tracks and beautiful scenery provided us with an opportunity to cozy up together in fascination of this spectacular set.
Tips For Visiting Garden Lights, Holiday Nights at Atlanta Botanical Garden With Children
- It gets very chilly at night, and the entire attraction is outdoors. Bundle up!
- Pick up some of the paper glasses to view the lights in a new and unique way. Our glasses made the lights look like snowflakes, which was pretty neat!
- You will walk a lot. Make sure your child wears comfortable shoes.
- Grab a cup of hot cocoa and a s'mores kit to warm up a bit and take a break from walking. (This was my favorite part of the evening, actually!)
It runs from now until January 4, 2014. Be sure to follow @atlbotanical to keep up-to-date with special events at the Atlanta Botanical Garden!
