Atlanta Botanical Garden
Located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, The Atlanta Botanical Garden is home to one of the world's largest permanent displays of orchids. There are also 15 acres of outdoor display gardens, and the Fuqua Conservatory which houses rare tropical and desert plants.
The Children's Garden is quite impressive. Kids learn that plants help us LAUGH, LIVE and LEARN. Special attractions include the Laugh Garden, where kids can wind through a cocoon tunnel and come out as a butterfly. There's a Dinosaur Garden where kids can dig for fossils and learn about carnivorous plants in the Soggy Bog. They can slide on a leaf, listen to story time reading of Peter Rabbit, and then walk through the story's scenery. There's even an Indian hut and a giant tree house. This is one of the best children's gardens I've ever seen!
The gardens are open Tuesday through Sunday from 9:00 - 5:00. Admission is $12.00 per adult and $9.00 per child.
