    You have to walk a little bit from the nearest MARTA station but once you get there, all sites are close by. The center, the park, the church, the house, the firehouse...

    If you go in the Visitor's Center you get free tickets for the tour of MLK Jr's childhood home. Really learned a lot about him... that was my favorite part of the Center.

    My heart broke to see the power of that humble carriage for Dr. King's funeral procession...with 200,000 mourners. To live in Georgia and not experience the lessons taught here are social ignorance.
