Every year we drive past the Atlanta Botanical Garden & ooh & ah (OK, I ooh & ah) over the the sneak peak of beautiful lights for their Garden Lights, Holiday Nights & every year time gets away from us & we don't go. It's in its 5th year & this year my husband bought tickets & we soaked it up last Saturday night.
We lucked out as it was cold but not unbearably cold & turned out to be a clear, pretty night. Here are some of my favorites...
a cute frog:
not the best shot (I need to improve my night photography!), but it was cool to a have a view of Midtown behind the lights:
corn - how cute is the corn?
the lights were just beautiful!
The Garden was filled with lots of families & has food & drink available throughout. I loved the fact they had a s'mores station! We split a hot chocolate & it was the perfect compliment to the evening.
If you live in metro-Atlanta or will be visiting Atlanta, take the time to see this - it's very family friendly & the gorgeous lights (& music) will get you into the holiday spirit! Expect crowds but again, the lights are totally worth it.
