May was a great month and we broke our all time single day ridership on Memorial Day Weekend. Our combination passes with the Georgia Aquarium also sold out that weekend.

June is full of activity for Atlanta Trolley Tour Line. We have many weddings lined up through out the month. Trolleys are very popular at weddings. They enable guests who may be staying at a hotel to have transportation to the church, reception and back. They make a unique alternative to a limousine and create a lasting memory. Using them as transportation also ensures that guest who may celebrate the day a little to much have a safe way to return home.

This summer is also the summer of the Staycation. This is where one vacations in thier own city or state. One way to start your Staycation is to take the Atlanta Trolley Tour. The tour along with the purchase of the Atlanta City Pass will give you several days of fun and admission to many of the attractions in the city.

Atlanta Trolley Tour Line Sells the City Pass at its Underground Atlanta location. Using the City Pass will save you over $50.00 in savings on admissions the major attractions in Atlanta.

If you only have one day to spend touring the city then the Trolley Tour and Georgia Aquarium combination ticket is a great deal. For only $52.00 you can enjoy a day of touring and get admission to the largest aquarium in the world. This combination is the only tour and aquarium combination in the city.

With the purchase of the City Pass or the Aquarium Combination ticket visitors to most attractions are able to bypass the line and gain entrance once the arrive. NO MORE WAITING IN LONG LINES.

Atlanta's Haunted History Tour

Atlanta's Haunted History Tour takes you on a journey into the night and into the darker side of Atlanta. On this 2½ hour tour you will hear tales of spirits, hauntings, mysteries, murders, suicide, war, fire, monsters and other stories of the city you would never hear on an average tour.

Your tour starts at the Visitors Center located at Underground Atlanta. You will ride through downtown Atlanta to your first stop, Oakland Cemetery, one of Atlanta's most treasured historical sites. A portion of your ticket cost is donated to the Historic Oakland Foundation, so you experience the thrills, excitement and intrigue of Atlanta's darker side and contribute to the preservation and education of this treasured historical site at the same time. You will learn of 19th century burial customs as well as tales of the residents who call Oakland home.Atlanta's Oakland Cemetery began in 1850 as a six-acre cemetery. It is a showplace of sculpture and architecture, and a botanical preserve with ancient oaks and magnolias. Here in this peaceful place the full scope of the city's rich and fascinating history unfolds before you. On your visit you will see the graves of 6,900 Confederates, as well as 3,000 unknowns. Some of Atlanta's most famous citizens, like Bobby Jones, Margaret Mitchell, famous for Gone with the Wind, and Maynard Jackson, Atlanta's first African American mayor, are also buried here.

From there you re-board the Tour Trolley and begin your journey back to tour Underground Atlanta. Under the streets you will hear tales of some of its most interesting characters.Underground Atlanta was given birth to in the 1920's, after concrete "viaducts" were constructed to elevate the street system one level, to permit a better flow of traffic. Merchants moved their operations to the second floor, leaving the old fronts for storage and service. Today, the Underground offers a complete family experience, with retail shops, specialty and gift shops, fast food, unique features and entertainment, special events and fine restaurants.
