I had hoped to hear about Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, but I suppose the family wants to minimize its more recent history. Fine. If you're into antiques and architecture, stop by. If you're a fan of the book and want to...More

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.
