What’s better than year-round adventure throughout Savannah? From historic landmarks and intriguing structures to tree tunnels and gorgeous landscape – here are The Slate’s favorite places to check out around coastal Georgia any time of the year.
1. Wormsloe Historic Site
Moss-covered trees, wildlife-filled wetlands, walking trails, vintage stone archways, and ruins of a Colonial estate – this historic site is a must see. Plus, you can even bring along your four-legged friend, since leashed pets are allowed on historic site trails.
2. Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens
This one is a given! With over 50 acres of horticultural delight, this botanical garden destination offers stunning views of ornamental foliage at a Historic Bamboo Farm. Plus, you can spend some time at the pick-your-own berry fields and bring home a tasty souvenir.
3. Forsyth Park
This is not your average park – yes, you’ve got your walking paths, basketball and tennis courts, and landscaped courtyards. But the historic fountain, added in 1858, is a sight to see in and of itself.
4. Savannah Botanical Gardens
A Savannah classic, this botanical garden offers a beautiful blend of formal and naturalistic plant exhibits. There are also a variety of walking trails, and there’s a historic house to visit.
5. Bonaventure Cemetery
Known as Savannah's oldest cemetery, this is no ordinary place for the dead. Situated on a scenic bluff of the Wilmington River, this world-famous destination is over 150 years old. Here, you’ll see incredible architecture, gravestone sculptures, and folklore around those buried at Bonaventure.
