In the midst of this off-the-wall Georgia weather, it can be hard to find the light at the end of the tunnel. Thankfully, sunshine (with a bit of a breeze) is on the way, and we know the perfect way to spend those days with a clear blue sky. The Atlanta Botanical Garden is free this week only, so you and your whole crew are invited.
This rare occurrence of free admission is in honor of Anne Cox Chambers, a local philanthropist and former WSB-TV owner, who passed on January 31 at the age of 100.
Her love of gardening transferred into her support of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens over the past several years as a trustee.
Her family has spoken out since her passing and knew that she'd want to share her love of all things floral with the city she loved so dearly.
According to WSB-TV, her granddaughter said, “In memory of the amazing woman she was, her love of flowers and her devotion to the community, we want all of Atlanta to experience the beauty of the Garden.”
From Tuesday, February 11 to Sunday, February 16, there's no need to reserve your ticket online.
Both the Atlanta Botanical Garden and their sister location, Gainesville Garden, are covered by the promotion.
The Midtown location is still sporting the "Alice in Wonderland: Imaginary Worlds" exhibit that proved to be a hit last summer and the months following it.
The gardens are slowly coming back to life from the chill of winter and are sporting some bright green leaves.
The Gainesville Garden is home to a similar theme, "Imaginary Worlds: Ogre and Friends." You can delve into a fictional world accompanied by Rip Van Winkle, a friendly ogre and more.
For those who've already experienced the Atlanta exhibit, the Gainesville location is only an hour away.
If you can't get enough of the enchanting views, stick around the Atlanta gardens for the Valentine's Day celebration this Friday.
