The Garden of Lights, Magical Nights held annually at the Atlanta Botanical gardens around Christmas is a perfect romantic Atlanta Dating Idea. You get a lot in one package and all at a fairly budget friendly price.
The scenery is magic Christmas lighting and displays all with the backdrop of Atlanta’s night skyline as a backdrop.
There is a large scale model railroad going through a artfully and professionally created miniature Christmas village, and a entire garden filled with glowing orbs of varying shapes, colors, and hues that change colors to the rhythm of Christmas music playing in the background.
There are dozens of comfortable seating areas scattered around where you and your date can sit and just enjoy the scenery on a cool romantic evening. There is a small bar serving up mixed drinks, and a excellent small café offering various salads, and sandwiches.
There are a few really nice garden style water fountains scattered around, and one large one with the city skyline in the background.
See the video below, and it will quickly become obvious that you don’t want to leave your camera at home.
Being that the Atlanta Botanical Gardens is adjacent to Piedmont Park, you and your date can make an entire day out of this event, so make sure and see the “Nearby Stuff” links below to help you plan for additional activities upon your visit to this spectacular annual event.
