One of the best places to take your family to if you are into nature. And one of the best places to take them to if your not. It's just breathtaking.

First time here in years and first time visit to the Christmas Lights Festival. Normally have two trains running through the park, but had a breakdown when we got our tickets, so we walked the gardens. GREAT, GREAT spectacle of Christmas lights and music. Many different themes with movable figures and fountains. Well worth the wait and short shuttle ride... More

The Falls was just a trickle but the lights were beautiful. We road the train around park then walked. It's a lengthy walk but there were swings and benches. There was hot cocoa and assorted drinks perfect for the cold night. Cost wise a great bargain.

Each year we take our group of 13 to see Christmas lights. We have been to Callaway Gardens, Stone Mountain, Lake Lanier, and the Botanical Gardens in recent years. While there is not quiet as much to do you can't beat the admission price. Our five teenagers and our nine year old all enjoyed being able to walk through the... More

Last night our family went to Christmas at the Falls for the first time. We found it to be a great night and a wonderful way to make some additional Christmas memories. The park was lit up very well. We stood in line about 20 minutes for the little train ride, but it was more than expected. The train looks... More

There is a drought, so the only water falling was a trickle. Still beautiful and the leaves changing color were spectacular. A great place - if you are driving through - take a walk and dont miss it.

We took our grandchildren here and they loved it. We stayed all day. Rode the train many times. They had fun on the playground and touring the whole park. In their words, "one of the best days ever". Entry fee is very reasonable or we could not have done this with 4 kids!

We stopped by the Falls on our way to our Tennessee location. Due to drought we did not see but a trickle of water. It was also a very pretty park. It amazed me that it was in town. Be sure to see the whole park. I enjoyed the stop so much!!

Thank Alana H
