Located three miles from the heart of historic Savannah along the Wilmington River, Bonaventure is one of the world’s most beautiful cemeteries. Live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss and the blooming of azaleas and camellias, plus the wildlife, make it a place of natural splendor, its winding paths reminiscent of a Victorian garden. In more modern times, this cemetery became especially well known after the bestselling book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, was published in 1994.

Enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner in an historic building. Built in 1858 by a famous New York architect, John Norris, this building originally belonged to John Stoddard and served as a warehouse; lower floors were called John Stoddard’s Lower Range, the upper as John Stoddard’s Upper Range. Later, it housed the Steven Shipping Company. Watch this video for more mouthwatering info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCOtnDLqs_A

Tours of the Ghost Coast Distillery are currently available five days a week where you can discover how people have enjoyed drink and revelry in Savannah. You can go back in time, hearing about when liquor and lawyers alike were banned from historic Savannah. General James Oglethorpe banned alcohol in 1734 and this was in effect for 21 years. When that prohibition was lifted, spirits began flowing in the parks and streets, and hasn’t stopped since. Take a look at these cocktails! https://ghostcoastdistillery.com/cocktails-2/

If you’re in town on the first Saturday of the month – any month – then be sure to tour the Savannah Cotton Exchange. Located at 100 East Bay Street, right by Cool Savannah, this building takes you back to days when cotton was king. The original structure was built in 1872, when Georgia was the leading cotton producer in the United States ($40 million annual revenues!). In the 1880s, this area was known as the Wall Street of the South because of this incredible commerce in cotton. The Cotton Exchange was opened for tours only a few short years ago – after nearly 40 years without such public access. http://coolsavannah.net/things-to-do-in-savannah-top-15-part-3-of-3/

Take advantage of the Tybee Island Marine Science Center Walks, Talks & Treks, located on a nearby island. These walks last an hour and are family friendly, appropriate for all ages. There are numerous walks available, overall, although its recommended that you check availability of each walk and reserve your space (912-786-5917) because “tides, staffing, and weather can impact programming.” You can also request a program and, if an educator is available, staff will arrange for that walk. http://coolsavannah.net/top-15-things-to-do-in-savannah-part-2-of-3/

Skidaway Island is part of Savannah – and is home to the UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium, Georgia’s first saltwater aquarium. Species of marine life are typically caught by staff and brought to 16 exhibit tanks to show visitors Georgia’s wide variety of marine creatures. This includes a “public touch tank” where you can get “up close and personal” with snails, crabs and other marine invertebrates.
