Atlanta Movie Tours, The Margaret Mitchell Tour

ImageAtlanta Movie Tours have a few different tours available. A Walking Dead Tour, What’s Filming in Atlanta, Gone with the Wind Tour. My neighbor, Melissa and I were lucky enough to to on the Gone with the Wind Tour. Our tour guide was Margaret Mitchell herself! ImageIsn’t she cute? She was witty, clever and wise, pretty cool for being dead for so long. She showed us her home, you know the Margaret Mitchell house in Midtown. Well, it was an apartment in the house. It was really cute. Here’s the kitchen.ImageMy kitchen is small, but can you even imagine it? The tour takes you to The Margaret Mitchell House, Oakland Cemetery, and The Downtown Library.

ImageThis is her headstone. I really think the tour was great and I hope to go on another one. It is amazing all of the little facts about our great city that you can learn. It was truly amazing.
