Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta's first public park and oldest cemetery, is a breathtaking portal to the past. Centered less than a mile from downtown, the 1850 garden cemetery is the final resting place for more than 70,000 people including Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones, over 6,000 Confederate soldiers and many of Atlanta's founding families. Take your time viewing the headstones of ancient Atlantans as you make your way through the botanical preserve dotted with magnolias and shady oaks. Guided tours are $10 for adults and $5 for children and are offered March-November on Saturdays and Sundays at 10am and 2pm and 4pm.
