While we wouldn’t normally put a cemetery on the top of our must-see list, Oakland is a solid exception. Founded in 1850 and designed in the style of the 19th-century rural garden movement, it’s full of gorgeous trees and immaculate landscaping, plus it’s home to plenty of famous Atlantans, including golfer Bobby Jones and Gone With the Wind author Margaret Mitchell. There are guided tours year-round, and you can also download their app for the self-guided version.
