Great news for those who are not so fond of cold weather...with the opening of the annual "Orchid Daze" exhibition in early February, the Atlanta Botanical Garden will begin offering complimentary (with paid admission) drop-in tours at 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays!
Even in the dead of winter, the Garden offers a tropical escape that no where else in the City can. The Fuqua Conservatory, featuring tropical and dessert environments, as well as the Fuqua Orchid Center, are fun and beautiful respites from the cold.

Being a native Floridian, and working Monday-Friday, I welcome these Saturday tours with open arms. If Saturdays aren't good for you, the same drop-in tour is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. And of course you can call the Garden to arrange for guided group tours.
