Walk anywhere in Savannah and you’ll overhear a conversation something like this, “The story goes…”. That’s because Savannah is steeped in history, mystery and tales. Its cemeteries are extremely popular, as are its movie sites and haunted buildings. I’m not usually a big fan of tours, but the Sixth Sense Savannah, Movie or Hearse Haunted tours, rock! You’re sure to recognize sites from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and Forrest Gump as you explore this Southern gem.
What can’t be missed in Savannah? Here are my picks: Stroll River Street and the 5 squares on Bull Street , Forsyth Park, Zunzis (mmmm, comfort food), Bonaventure Cemetery, Tybee Island beach, lighthouse & beach town, Savannah History Museum, Lulu’s (for dessert), Fort Pulaski Nat’l Monument, the fountain featured in Midnight on the garden of Good & Evil, Telfair Museum of Art, ride the Riverfront Trolley, Bay Street, Wormsloe Historical Site, the Bamboo Farm, Savannah Slow Ride, and walk around with an open container north of Jones Street…just because you can!
Erin, it was truly a pleasure to meet you. You’re the best, Sister. Love ya!
