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!
