America's Top Free Attractions: Bonaventure Cemetery

Courtesy of Visit Savannah

Bonaventure Cemetery, Savannah, GA

The novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil made this 100-acre Gothic cemetery famous, but it’s much more than a tourist trap for literary buffs. Built on the site of a former plantation in 1846, Bonaventure is graced with moss-draped trees and a mix of tombstones and ornate stone statuary. Savannah was the (fictional) stomping grounds of Scarlett O’Hara, and Bonaventure sets an evocative mood of the Old South. The Bonaventure Historical Society offers free tours on the second Sunday of each month.
