A stroll through Oakland Cemetery


Take a stroll through Oakland Cemetery.  It's just down Memorial, and it's the final resting place of some impactful Atlanta cats.  Folks like Bobby Jones, Ivan Allen Jr., and Maynard Jackson.  A true piece of Atlanta history that's worth knowing.  A good idea is to read about Oakland before you go. They also have tours on Saturdays and Sundays with guides that know their stuff.   ($Free).

Notes:  This is one of those cemeteries that both educational from a historic standpoint and just a little spooky.  Sometimes, various organizations have dinners right here as the sun goes down.  Fun!
