7 Super Attractions of Savannah ...


If youโ€™re heading to Georgia for a vacation, youโ€™ll be interested in the attractions of Savannah. Savannah deserves its slot on the list of places to visit in the South โ€“ itโ€™s a beautiful historic city redolent of the days of antebellum plantations and belles in crinolines, and it's only 18 miles from the Georgia coast. If you like New Orleans, apparently youโ€™ll love the attractions of Savannah, as itโ€™s often likened to a younger sister of the Big Easy.

1. Bonaventure Cemetery

Bonaventure Cemetery

A cemetery might not seem like one of the top attractions of Savannah, but this one is quite interesting. Located on a scenic bluff overlooking the Wilmington River, Bonaventure Cemetery found fame as a setting in the novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Its 160 acres are located on the site of an old plantation and it has been a graveyard since 1794, but became a public cemetery in 1907. The well kept grounds are park like. You can take self-guided tours (guides are available) or book a tour through a tour company.
