Prepare to be whisked away into a vortex of illumination at the Atlanta Botanical Garden's Garden Lights, Holiday Nights Nov. 11 – Jan. 7. The contemporary holiday tradition – named one of the top 10 holiday light shows in the country by USA Today – features nearly 2 million energy-efficient LED lights in blazing reds, brilliant oranges and sizzling yellows.

In the new "Nature's Wonders" display, guests will be immersed in cutting-edge technology that allows lights - all suspended from the grand treetops of Storza Woods – to be choreographed to music and sound effects. The curtain-like display features vertically hung strings of lights forming a wall of brilliant colors that can be programmed to music and special sound effects to create illusions.

Elsewhere in the Garden, look for a return of perennial favorites like the Great Lawn's dancing "Orchestral Orbs," towering cone trees, giant candles, the serene Ice Goddess and enveloping "Tunnel of Light."

In addition, the Holiday Model Trains will be chugging and the Glow Bar hopping, while s'more-roasting firepits and cash bars will take the chill off both kids and kids at heart. Round out the evening by reserving a table at Longleaf restaurant or grab some takeout at the Quick Café.
