Festival of Fleecing or Festival of Disappoinment
This rating is specifically about the "Festival of Lights", not about Atlantic Station as a whole, but there is no place to separate the two on Trip Advisor. In fact, I would recommend anyone visiting Atlanta come to AS to eat, drink, and shop- it's a cute and fun little area. However, if you are there in Dec. of 2020, I suggest you walk to the side of the parking garage and gaze down (for free) on the so-called "Festival of Lights", because I assure you that driving through is a GIANT waste of money. They basically filled a parking lot with a bunch of stand up light items, put sandbags on them (clearly visible), and then tell you to pipe in your own music, pay $45 (after taxes and fees on weekends) and drive around. As my teenage daughter commented, "It looks like they bought out a Home Depot display area and charged us to look at it. Yep- I think that sums it up perfectly. I can't believe I got suckered in to this. No matter how much Covid-boredom you feel, this still is NOT worth it.
