Oh how clever of me to post about a cemetery on Halloween! I’m sure no other travel bloggers are doing the same… 😉
Bonaventure Cemetery was high on my list of places to visit in Savannah this past week. But our 48 hours in Savannah were not nearly enough and our days were so jammed packed (in the best way possible!) that I almost missed out on visiting. I guess you can say I saved the best for last. In reality, I wasn’t able to book a tour in time and ended up exploring this gorgeous 160-acre cemetery on my own about 45 minutes before it closed. Was it worth it? Completely. Do I recommend waiting to the last minute and scrambling to see as much as you can in less than an hour? Not quite.
Tour groups are not always my favorite way to go but so many people told me that tours through Shannon Scott Journeys are a great value and experience. One woman I had met at our B&B told me that next time I’m visiting Savannah, book a tour and make sure to get Shannon as my guide. “The tour was 3 hours long but I could have listened to him talk all day. He made the dead come alive.” Not literally, don’t worry. Not like I needed one, but I now have a reason to visit Savannah again!
Hopefully my pictures will persuade you to visit sometime soon! Enjoy.
Which one is your favorite picture? I went a little crazy taking pictures of all the Spanish Moss but it’s just too beautiful! I’d love to hear if you’ve visited Bonaventure Cemetery before! I have plenty of posts coming up about my road trip through Charleston and Savannah. Both cities did not disappoint.
