Midtown is shining bright this season as the new Garden Lights, Holiday Nights shines at Atlanta Botanical Garden through the holidays.   This year marks the third annual extravaganza at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens featuring one million lights. Towering candy canes of red and white lights greet you as you walk into the winter wonderland. Look for a harvest of illuminated corn, brilliant bugs and the grand Poinsettia trees. And of course you can’t miss the “Orchestral Tribes”- a one-of-a-kind topiary light show choreographed to holiday music – and listen for Sounds of the Radiant Rainforest in the Fuqua Conservatory.

Want to make a weekend out of your Botanical Holiday lights experience? Snag a W.Land package from W Hotel Midtown package and spend the weekend in style.  And enjoy an array of festive cocktails from the Glow Bar located in the Edible Garden. Lethal Rhymes DJ sets the mood along with lights and disco balls as guests order specialties like the Rudolph Martini- made with cranberry and champagne garnished with a cranberry red nose.


And to balance out the libations from the Glow Bar, make sure to stop by for dinner and Smores, which is served nightly from 5pm to 9:30. Metrofresh offers a variety of items such as baked mac and cheese and a daily selection of soups. Paired with a signature hot chocolate, you will be good to go.

Whether you bring the whole family, or just that special someone, the Winter Wonderland is a must this holiday season. And it never seems to get old.

And, another cool fact about this show? The glowing wonderland is made of over one million energy-efficient bulbs which are illuminated solely by the movement of the electrons in the semiconductor.
