How to Enjoy Spring in Atlanta, GA
1. Spot New Blooms at the Botanical Gardens
One of the best reasons to visit Atlanta in springtime is the Atlanta Botanical Garden! The nature-inspired garden oasis shows off fabulous colors, thousands of flowers, and stunning plant collections. For the ultimate garden experience, stop by the Botanical Gardens from March to April and enjoy gorgeous blossoms at their peak. From tulips to daffodils to hyacinths, the garden’s beauty spans 30 acres in the heart of the city, making it a must-see during spring in Atlanta.
2. Attend a Spring Festival
The Atlanta Dogwood Festival is an annual, three-day event that celebrates spring with arts and culture. Since its start more than 80 years ago, the event has become one of the United States’ most recognized art festivals. Every year as the Dogwood trees bloom, artists from across the country gather in Piedmont Park to showcase their work. From live music to impressive paintings, everything about the Dogwood Festival will inspire you.
3. Enjoy a Refreshing Hike
Just inside the city limits, you’ll find the East Palisades Trail. This section of the Chattahoochee River is a local favorite and features some of the best in-town hiking trails. Dotted along the intricate trail system are beautiful views, historic ruins, and even a bamboo forest. Plus, the constant rushing sounds of the river make a trek on these trails extra peaceful.
4. Take a Stroll in the Park
If you’d prefer to take a walk in an urban setting, there are two places you’ll have to visit – The Atlanta Beltline and the Historic Fourth Ward Park. Visitors can access the park from the Eastside Beltline Trail to easily explore both locations. With intricate art displays, 17 acres of green space, and much more, there’s plenty to enjoy here!
