Tours and Information

301 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.

We suggest you begin your adventure with a visit to the Savannah Visitor Information Center on MLK Blvd. There you can decide what you want to see and if you want to tour by trolley, by carriage, by bus , by segway or just on foot. No matter how you travel, Savannah's antebellum homes, gardens and majestic old oaks draped with Spanish moss are not to be missed.

A tour is a great way to get a "feel" for Savannah. The visitors center has maps, brochures and a very knowledgable staff to help you plan your visit.

Colonial era cemetery

The Colonial Park Cemetery with gravestones dating back to the 1700's is located within the historic district. Many of Savannah's earliest settlers are buried here.

Minor League Baseball

1401 E Victory Dr
Savannah, GA

The Sand Gnats are the single A team for the New York Mets. Great fun for everyone but especially for the kids. A chance to see rising young players before they become major league stars.

There is always something going on at the ball park when the Sand Gnats are in town!

Historic cemetery

330 Bonaventure Rd
Thunderbolt, GA

Bonaventure Cemetery is located east of Savannah in the town of Thunderbolt. Home to the Bird Girl, made famous as the cover photograph of novel "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". The former site of a 600 acre plantation, Bonaventure lies on a scenic bluff overlooking the Wilmington River and is rich with statuary, history and gorgeous moss draped oaks. A word of warning - take some bug spray, the mosquitoes can be fierce here, particularly in the late afternoon.
