AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Covering 30 acres in Midtown’s Piedmont Park, this gorgeous garden complex is a collection of themed gardens that wow you with botanical splendor while gently educating you about these environments.  At a minimum you’ll want to see the Japanese garden and the unexpected and wonderful Dorothy Chapman Fuqua Conservatory, which showcases flora from tropical and desert climes, along with the adjacent crowd-pleasing Fuqua Orchid Center. It houses the largest permanent orchid display in the United States, and plays host to the annual wintertime Orchid Daze, when exhibitions of rare and beautiful orchids are paired with art and performances. There are also a rose garden, a children's garden and woodland areas to explore if you have the time. Atlanta Botanical Gardens is one of the best things to do in Atlanta if you're visiting in the spring. The garden is open Tuesdays to Sundays year round, with longer hours from April to October.
