Savannah: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Walk

2. Savannah: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Walk

Who would have thought that a story about characters in a sleepy Southern enclave would have created the stir that John Berendt did with his non-fiction novel "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"? Even the rumors whispered beneath dripping Spanish moss are enough to make a man blush, and it's all true! Just another day in this eccentric city? Savannah Walks is proud to present A Walk through Midnight, a saunter through the pages of Berendt's runaway 1994 bestseller, which Clint Eastwood made into a film in 1997. Guides offer personal insights and observations, as well as recently unearthed stories about the characters in what the people of Savannah have come to call "the book." Some of the guides were even extras in the movie! The guides also have special items of interest to show you along the way. Who knows? On some days you might even see some of the actual characters strolling about the city! No other "book tour" gets you as close as this!

Savannah: Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum Self-Guided Tour

3. Savannah: Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum Self-Guided Tour

Journey through Savannah's notable maritime history on a self-guided tour of the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. Wander through the exhibits at your own pace, and discover a collection of ship models, maritime antiques, stunning maritime art, and special exhibitions of local and internationally-acclaimed artists. As you take your tour, spend some time marveling at the architecture of the William Scarbrough House, the museum's home, which was designated a National Historic Landmark by the US Park Service in 1974. Delve into the many detailed elements of the Regency architecture, including the honeysuckle and palm molding, the Diocletian window, Doric and Corinthian columns, six-panel curved doors, and a stunning skylight. Once you're done inside, head out to the expansive gardens and savor the sights and smells of the delightful flowers, trees, and shrubs. Take shade under the largest and oldest sycamore tree in the city of Savannah, and enjoy scenic views of the historic Talmadge Bridge from the belvedere. Check out the pavilion, reflective ponds, a vine-covered pergola, a rondelle, an assembly room, and one of only two remaining early 20th-century weather kiosks in the United States, which resembles a Greek Revival Temple. The Ships of the Sea Museum is among 150 other historic places in the US that are members of the National Trust for Historic Preservation Distinctive Destination Program.

Savannah's Urban Forest: the Gates and Gardens Tour

4. Savannah's Urban Forest: the Gates and Gardens Tour

Savannah's legacy as a garden city is firmly rooted in her humble beginnings as a novel agrarian experiment. Today, massive oaks shade stately squares and handcrafted iron gates grace elegant courtyards. This unique walking tour shows you what lies behind the gates of some of Savannah's finest homes. It lets you explore the fauna of this lush forest city. John Berendt, author of the bestseller “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” described walking through Savannah this way: "With twenty-two luscious green squares it is like strolling through the rooms of an elegant open air mansion.” Walking Magazine has rated Savannah "one of the 10 Best Walking Cities in America." The tree-lined streets, beautiful squares, magnificent parks and slow Southern pace make it an ideal location for the leisurely yet intimate feel that only a walking tour can provide.
