Trip Planner: USA / Georgia / Georgia Coast / Savannah / Bonaventure Cemetery
If the stones of Bonaventure Cemetery could talk, they would narrate some of Savannah's most dramatic stories. Located on a scenic bluff overlooking the Wilmington River, the cemetery shot to fame in 1994 when it became a setting for a movie directed by Clint Eastwood. A quiet place of oaks, lawn sculptures, and dripping Spanish moss, the cemetery attracts visitors with its eerie feel, which inspired writer John Berendt to call it "the garden of good and evil." As you stroll through the cemetery, look for the graves of poet Conrad Aiken, actress Edythe Chapman, and songwriter Johnny Mercer. Bonaventure Cemetery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

This was a wonderful visual experience! Nothing much to stay other than I think it's important these types of places continue to be preserved for the coming generations to be able to see. Very wide range of history here and I definitely recommend taking a stroll through the Bonaventure Cemetery. - Take Care and Live Well - 🤙🤓
We visited here as part of a tour. It gets chilly here (a few degree down than the city), so keep something warm handy. This place has rich history and legacy of graves. Rich families of Savannah still have places here amidst their ancestors. Do go with the tour guide, else you will feel lost. It’s the back stories of the graves and crypts that make the visit worth. Will recommend!
