    Just come and get lost. Lots to read and look at. Some great views of downtown too. The guide provided in the gift store is also fun to use. There are several tours year round to check out as well.

    Simply not to be missed! The unexpectedly romantic pathways ramble through ancient Victorian gardens filled with stunning architectural monuments. GREAT stories on the different guided tours!

    Oakland is the best place to eat lunch. Go to Grant Park Coffee or Ria's and pick up some delicious sandwiches to go and sit in the cemetery for the best lunch date in town!

    One of Atlanta's most interesting historic sites, this cemetery is the final resting place of Bobby Jones, Margaret Mitchell and Maynard Jackson, to name a few. Self and guided tours are available.

    Historical gem in the Grant Park neighborhood. Beautiful gardens, skyline views and so much history of Atlanta and the Old South all in one place.

    A surprisingly active and beautiful cemetery, be sure to take one of the guided tours or visit for one of their events: Tunes in the Tombs, Sunday in the Park, and of course, for Halloween!

    I'm particularly fond of the mausoleums as well as the historic Jewish section and the Confederate soldiers grounds.

    Oakland is using a Save America's Treasures grant from the National Park Service to restore several of the mausoleums on the site. Visit and see them at work doing amazing stone restoration.

    Biking through this historic cemetery where much of the fallen confederate army is buried in front of the Atlanta skyline is a serene experience.

    A cemetery is not a park for good times, or for 5K races, or vendors! Have some common decency and respect for the dead!

    The tours are worth every penny. The Halloween tour sells out months of advance, book early.

    I’m not really a fan of cemeteries and I don’t see the big ow of this one, but it is very touristic. You can take guided tours for around $15.
