Quite an interesting place to visit but with great views of the city in the background. Lots of people of great influence ended their days here in a beautiful setting.

I enjoyed our meander through the cemetery at Oakland Cemetery. The grounds are well maintained and very peaceful. We saw the grave of Margaret Mitchell and some really impressive and beautiful graves. The monument to the soldiers of the civil war is very beautiful.

I actually found the grounds to be very uneven so I recommend sneakers, but if you stay on just the paved areas, then sandals.
