The iconic theater is perhaps most famous for the fact that it’s still here—a successful 1974 campaign to save it from the wrecking ball led to its designation as a national historic landmark. The standard hour-long tours walks guests through the theater’s most recognizable spaces and introduce Mighty Mo, the theater’s nearly 100-year-old Möller pipe organ, while limited-run tours examine unseen spots such as a star dressing room where vintage performance tickets serve as wallpaper. At Halloween-time, book a ghost tour to learn about the spirits said to still haunt the 1929 theater. Then, if there’s ever an odd technical glitch at the next show you attend, you’ll know exactly whom to blame. 660 Peachtree Street, 404-881-2000, foxtheatre.org
