7 Super Attractions of Savannah ...


If you’re heading to Georgia for a vacation, you’ll be interested in the attractions of Savannah. Savannah deserves its slot on the list of places to visit in the South – it’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 you’ll love the attractions of Savannah, as it’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.
