| 6/7/2018 10:14:00 AM


This is Part 1 of a 5-part series. 

Instead of pulling over to see the world’s 3rd biggest ball of yarn during your vacation, try something a little more worthwhile. This could be your only vacation of the year, so “fill your eyes with wonder” as the travel bloggers say and visit some unforgettable places. All over the U.S., there are publicly and privately funded, breathtaking gardens that can redefine your definition of horticulture. From pristine botanical memorials to fascinating plant sculptures, you will find your imagination running wild with your own backyard botanical ideas.

Plus, these gardens are prime for great pictures that are guaranteed to make your Instagram pop and may even inspire you to start a succulent garden, raised garden, or ‘living’ sculpture garden of your own! So, if you are journeying through the southeastern U.S., carve out some time to visit one or more of these amazing garden experiences.

1. Atlanta Botanical Gardens

 Additional Provisions: concerts, auctions, adult classes, and private rentals.

Located in Atlanta’s Midtown next to the very active Piedmont park, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens brings some vibrant plant art to the hustle and bustle of a big city. The garden offers a kids’ area, rock gardens, a conservatory, a canopy walk, and a famous plant sculpture exhibition. These “living” sculptures can get up to 26 feet tall, taking the shape of mermaids, peacocks, camels, and other exciting creatures.
