Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site
The childhood home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is the center of this NPS site in Atlanta. While most of what you see here will be on a self-guided basis, there are ranger-led tours offered through the actual house. You sign up for a tour the day-of at the info desk located inside the visitor center—be sure to check for updates before you go, but generally tours run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and your safest bet is earlier in the day. After signing up, you can visit the other surrounding historic sites: Ebenezer Baptist Church (where Dr. King was baptized and served as a pastor), Dr. and Mrs. King’s gravesite, and more.
