Historic Oakland Cemetary is very unique place to visit. There is currently an initiative underway that is working to restore and preserve Oakland Cemetary.

I'd recommend taking a guided tour, as the guides also tell wonderful stories. You may be surprised at the number of names that you recognize (such as Margare Mitchell, Bobby Jones, Maynard Jackson, and Carrie Steele Logan).

There isn't any real parking, so take MARTA.

While it may sound odd, my husband and I enjoy visiting old cemetaries - and this is one of the best. On the National Register of Historic Places, Oakland is an 80+ acre memorial park with fabulous Victorian statues and monuments. There are lots of old trees here, too.

After visiting the cities of the dead in New Orleans, my girlfriend and I became interested in visiting historic cemetaries and knew we had to check this place out. We went on a Sunday and opted to take the guided tour for $10. The self guided is only a $2 for the map but since it was our first time there we opted to be chaperoned. We were not disappointed! We learned so much about the interesting history of the cemetary itself (reasons behind the segregation of burial spots; civil war soldiers buried there) and were amazed at the beautiful sculptures and art that make up the grounds. If you're remotely interested in history I highly recommend you take the guided tour. I also suggest you take the MARTA because you will not find parking on the streets and there is no designated garage for the cemetary.
