Atlanta Botanical Garden

This 30-acre botanical garden located in Midtown Atlanta boasts the noble mission to “develop and maintain collections for the purposes of display, education, conservation, research and enjoyment.” Exhibits include the Fuqua Orchid Center (see photo), the Tropical Rotunda, the Japanese Garden, the Children’s Garden, the Conservation Greenhouse, the Woodland Shade Garden and the Desert House. Because the collections naturally change with the seasons, the botanical garden experience is always unique.
