The Atlanta Botanical Gardens is a WONDERFUL family or individual field trip. It is suitable for all seasons of the year and even visiting on a rainy day is fun. The children's garden is wonderful and the play area is fantastic. I always feel safe and happy when I visit the garden!

This is my favorite field trip location. The children have their own area, with tons of hands-on activities (bring a bathing suit and towel!). Walking the gardens is beautiful anytime of the year and they often have new exhibits to see. The charge is very small. If visiting the Atlanta area, they have a package to see the aquaruim, coca-cola factory, and a few others and the botanical gardens is included.

We went here with our homeschool group, and everyone LOVED it! This is really a trip for everyone. The little ones, the older ones, parents, guys and gals. We spent all day here looking at all of the different plants. There was even an exhibit that was called " Sculpture in Motion". Large sculptures that moved. I would recommed this for anyone. I know my kids still talk about it and it has been over a year since we went.

We went on our vacation and the kids loved it. They have something for everyone, play area for kids, cooking demonstration for adults. Lots of chances for getting good pictures also.

This is one of my children's favorite places to go in Atlanta. The children's gardens have something fun and educational for children of all ages. My younger ones love to play and explore while the older ones get more of an educational experience. Don't limit yourselves to the children's area because there are so many other wonderful exhibits throughout the gardens. The orchid house has little colored frogs in cages and free wandering quail. In the spring you can sometimes see quail chicks following behind their mothers. The gardens are not just fun and educational, but it is also one of the best places in Atlanta for photography.

My family and I were ablet to visit the gardens on the way through Atlanta on a trip to Tennessee. It was very hot that day, but the kids still enjoyed walking through the beautiful flowers. They pointed out every bird and butterfly they encountered with excitement.
The day we visited the gardens were hosting an art exhibit of very large colorful statues that the kids were amazed by. They had to have their picture made in front of each one. They also had an area for children to spash in and cool off.
I recommend this as a fun family trip or an educational group field trip.

The Atlanta Botanical Gardens is beautiful. We have been on three different occasions. The temopary exhibits we have seen are amazing. The childrens' area is fun, and the lights at Christmas are absolutely fabulous! Yearly family membership is only $99. With membership, you can visit during regular daily hours as many times as you want. They have multiple childrens' interactive exhibits/activities throughout the year, so, if you live near Atlanta, this is definitely the way to go!
