Bonaventure Cemetery

Bonaventure Cemetery Savannah Georgia Photography

Over the holidays Lance and I visited his family in southern Georgia. While we were visiting they so sweetly took us on a day trip to Savannah so I could check out the city.  We walked around River Street, an older part of the city with little shops and restaurants along the riverfront.  Afterwards I suggested heading over the Bonaventure Cemetery for a bit of history (and of course, to see some spanish moss).  

Bonaventure Cemetery is located east of Savannah on 100 acres of land by the Wilmington River and is a registered historical landmark by the National Registry of Historical Places.  It was beautiful and fascinating to explore the grounds.  I don’t know why, but I love cemeteries like these.  They’re full of history and stories.  We wander through the graves, reading dedications and historical markers.  As a native Californian, I love to wander through cities like Savannah which are considerably older with longer histories.  If you’re ever in Savannah, check out Bonaventure Cemetery. They have tours, too!
