Review: Atlanta Botanical Gardens @AtlBotanical #gardenlights

I was given the opportunity to take my family to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens' Garden Lights, Holiday Nights. The gardens were lit up by areas with different themes. Fortunately for us, the weather was cool but not cold.  For those who aren't familiar, this is a walk-through display.  Be prepared to brave the weather and enjoy a show.

This is actually a reflection. The tree was made of lights sitting on top of a small pond. It made for a wonderful wishing pool.

This one is just past the big poinsettia tree. My shots of that, for whatever reason, were rather blurred. The teddy bears, though, are too cute.

For those with train lovers, or just model train lovers, there was a pair of displays of trains. Multiple trains on each, all different. I definitely enjoyed this one.

All told, a very nice evening out.  My kids enjoyed making s'mores, or at least playing with the fire (be prepared, s'more kits are about $6.25 per pack which includes the stick).  There were beverages at a couple of different locations as well, both alcoholic and non.  Parking was $5, but it was a non-prime time.  Check ahead on their web site for prices for prime time parking and tickets.

I was compensated for this post in return for giving an honest review.
