Atlanta Botanical Gardens (courtesy of Atlanta Botanical Gardens)


The newly expanded Atlanta Botanical Garden sits on 30 acres in central Atlanta. It includes the 600-foot-long, 40-foot-high Canopy Walk, the only tree-canopy-level elevated walkway of its kind in the United States. From the Canopy Walk, visitors can access 15-acre Storza Woods, one of the last remaining hardwood forests in the city. Cascades Garden is a sunny retreat featuring a series of waterfalls, and Edible Garden has orchards, an herb wall, and an outdoor kitchen for cooking demonstrations by Atlanta's top chefs. Although exhibits typically depend on what's in bloom, visitors can see a wide range of flowers any month of the year. The Hydrangea Collection is one of the finest in the Southeast. The shrubs peak in late May and June, with stunning blooms of pink, blue, and white. The state-of-the-art orchid conservatories house the country's largest public collection of the flower. The Children's Garden combines plant education and interactive entertainment, with themed gardens like the Vegetable Garden, the Dinosaur Garden, and the Laugh Garden.
