Not as famous as Bonaventure but more historic and just as beautiful, this cemetery was developed in 1850 as the Old Cemetery (Colonial Park Cemetery), the Old Jewish Cemetery, Potter’s Field, and the Old Negro Cemetery approached capacity. Laurel Grove North is unique in that the interment rights to all of the available cemetery lots were sold out during the Victorian Era, and, as a result, this park-like cemetery probably has the highest concentration of Victorian period cemetery architecture in the Southeast. You may get lost though, the entire area is 67 acres!

Fort Pulaski is historically important for a variety of reasons, mostly as the last of the great forts to see battle in the Civil War, but it is also just a beautiful place to be. Located on Cockspur Island the fort still shows its battle scars proudly and is surrounded my miles of lush hiking trails.

Oatland Island is Savannah's own little zoo, but just like every thing here, it's a little different. Sprawling across the island there are large enclosures holding a variety of native Georgia wildlife such at Bobcats and Bald Eagles, and Grey Wolves. There are also education programs at the large main house.

One of our favorite places to watch a sunset, The Savannah National Wildlife Refuge is a breathtakingly beautiful place just north of Savannah. While the Refuge is massive and includes parts of Georgia and South Carolina, there is also a four mile loop that can be driven by car. You'll see all sorts of wildlife including lots of alligators, great blue herons, and seasonal bird life. Spottings have also included bald eagles, bobcats, coyotes, gopher tortoises, and snakes! Look further in this guide for a mad of the trails and how to get there!

About an hour down the coast off of I-95 is the sprawling Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge. Go there to see an abundance of Low Country wildlife but also marvel at the post apocalyptic scene of a Refuge on the site of an old WW2 air force base. Remains of the previous plantation remain as well. Look further in this guide for a map of the trails and how to get there!

The Hostel in the Forest is a strange Hippie hold out in the middle of redneck country, but a great place to spend the night. Run since the seventies, the hostel is famous for its tree houses and its beautiful forests. Sitting on 133 acres of wilderness, there is also a beautiful lake wear guests are encouraged to swim (clothes optional), but watch out for the fishies! Book ahead of time as the hostel stays full and look for scheduled sweat lodges and meditation retreats too.
