While we enjoyed visiting, I'm surprised to see this as the #1 thing in Atlanta. The place is beautiful. However, it is very difficult to drive around due to the tight roads. The map was a little difficult to figure out, but a walking tour...More

Just to add to the other reviews this is a great stop to see the history of Atlanta and some people who helped add to that history. As others have mentioned Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones with people who leave golf items near his grave, etc....More

I visited Oakland to learn some Atlanta history and was blown away by the beauty of the park and knowledge of the tour guide at the cemetery. It was a hot (I get the "hot-lanta" slang now) day and the beauty and tranquility of Oakland...More

We walked to the cemetary after eating at Six Feet Under. Late afternoon in July but the weather was decent. Would probably want to visit in the AM hour. If you love history or are a Civil War buff, this is the place to visit.

A really pretty and historical walk. This is a very cute part of town. While you are there stop into the bar Six Feet Under and have a brew!

Yes, it's better in the spring/summer/fall, but even in the winter it's still a beautiful spot. Very peaceful, lots of history. I see several complaints about tour guides. I guess it's luck of the draw... I had a middle-aged woman who did an excellent job....More

I actually found the grounds to be very uneven so I recommend sneakers, but if you stay on just the paved areas, then sandals.
