But if your teen is ready to take the plunge the first thing they need to figure out is how to build a resume that stands out even if they don’t have any work experience.

Celebrate life and love at Oakland Cemetery this Valentine’s Day Love Stories of Oakland Tour returns Feb. 14-15

ATLANTA — Love springs eternal at Oakland Cemetery this Valentine’s Day weekend as Atlanta’s oldest cemetery revisits its popular Love Stories of Oakland specialty tour Feb. 14 and Feb. 15

For Victorian-era Atlantans, love and death went hand-in-hand,” said Mary Woodlan, director of special events at Historic Oakland Foundation. “Our Love Stories tour is one of our most popular specialty tours, and it is always exciting to share with our visitors the little-known facts behind Oakland’s monuments to everlasting love.”

Love Stories of Oakland takes attendees to parts of the cemetery not often visited during other tours. More than 25 stops along the hour-long tour chronicles the lives, loves and losses of some of the 70,000 Atlantans who lie in rest at Oakland Cemetery. In addition, costumed tour guides interpret the symbols of love and devotion — both romantic and familial — found on markers, mausoleums and statues throughout the cemetery. 

Tours begin at 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. and are available with advance ticketing only. All attendees receive a commemorative tussie-mussie made with cuttings from Oakland Cemetery’s gardens. Adults, $10; students and seniors 65+ (with valid ID), $5; families of two adults and two children, $26; children under 3 and Oakland Cemetery Members, free.
