This was very informative and interesting particularly since she was the author of Gone With the Wind. We really enjoyed learning about Margaret Mitchell and some of the back stories that played a part of Gone With the Wind. Definitely suggest going through this tour.

I haven't read/watched GWTW so I didn't know a lot about her. There is a guided tour of her home which was excellent and seeing the old photos was very interesting. Easy access from downtown via the subway.
