History and Ghost Tours

Original home of the sculpture known as “Bird Girl” featured on the cover of the best selling book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Bonaventure Cemetery is located on the Wilmington River east of downtown. It is very large and extremely beautiful and is open to the public daily.

Savannah is believed by many to be a haunted city, as it was built on Native American burial grounds, so while it may not seem family-friendly and too much talk of ghosts might spook the little ones, Ghost Tours and visiting cemeteries are common for visitors, surprisingly even those with kids.

The graveyard is a little bit out of the city, so it's a good stop to make if you're heading towards Tybee Island.
