MLK Jr. has been a personal hero since childhood. And, you find out that everyone felt the same way about him as they do about activists NOW! Why does he have to stir things up? Make a spectacle? Guess what? You find out that every...More

This is a must when visiting Atlanta. We didn't do a formal tour but we walked around the three houses, saw Ebenezer Church, and Dr. and Mrs. King's burial site. I highly recommend going to this historic area. It was a very meaningful experience.

You need to book a tour if you want to see MLK's home. Otherwise you can walk around the area. If you do the tour, you gotta get tickets early in the morning and then return at the time you select.
