If you're a lover of the South like I am, beautiful Savannah is not to be missed! Savannah offers everything that gives the South is distinct charm: Spanish moss-draped oak trees, beautiful antebellum mansions and historic buildings, delicious soul food, fresh-out-of-the-oven pecan pralines. But one of Savannah's best features is the one-of-a-kind Bonaventure Cemetery located on a scenic bluff overlooking the Wilmington River just outside downtown Savannah.
John Berendt's 1994 novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and the subsequent movie directed by Clint Eastwood, focused on Bonaventure Cemetery—it practically became its own character in the story. On any visit to Savannah, making the short trip to the beautiful Bonaventure Cemetery is a must do.
