Step back in time in Atlanta's most tangible link to the past, Oakland Cemetery. This historical park is the final resting place for many Civil War soldiers, golfing legend Bobby Jones, and "Gone With the Wind" author Margaret Mitchell. Tours are...more
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
