HIGHLIGHTS

Bonaventure Cemetery

Situated on a bluff of the Wilmington River, Bonaventure Cemetery is described as “part natural cathedral, part sculptural garden.”  Amidst the moss-covered trees, you will find the final resting places of musician Johnny Mercer, poet Conrad Aiken, Georgia’s first governor Edward Telfair, and many more. 

 

City Market

Home to some of Savannah’s most popular shops, restaurants, and art galleries, this area of Historic Downtown has been in existence since the 1700s.  Come to eat, shop and explore a little bit of Savannah’s history.

 

Forsyth Park

This 30-acre city park is home to an iconic fountain, Saturday farmer’s markets, concerts, and other city events.  Check to see if you can take advantage of any special events being held here or visit to sunbathe, read, relax, and/or people watch!

 

Squares of Savannah

visitsavannah.com/essential-savannah/squares-parks.aspx

Downtown Savannah has 22 different squares that are an integral part of the uniqueness of the city, and each square has its own story.  For example, you may be familiar with a little movie called Forrest Gump—the bus stop scenes were filmed right in Chippewa Square! Don’t miss out on the chance to discover all of these one-of-a-kind public spaces in Savannah. 

 

Tybee Island

Are you wishing you could escape the city for some much-needed beach time?  A short trip from Historic Savannah, beautiful Tybee Island offers the coastal Georgia experience for which you are looking.  Walk along the Tybee Island Pier; visit the Tybee Island Light Station—Georgia’s oldest and tallest lighthouse; or grab a meal in one of the many island eateries (Fannie’s on the Beach and North Beach Bar & Grill are great choices!).
