Bonaventure Cemetery Thunderbolt, Georgia, United States

Plunge into Bonaventure Cemetery

Savannah’s allure entangles my senses as I meander aimlessly thru her gritty, yet Southern hipster streets. Each corner seems to tell a story and my next journey thru her is no different with the Bonaventure Cemetery. My fascination with cemeteries runs deep in my Southern blood. Stepping foot thru the gated archway, it takes my breath away and captures me right from the start. I find myself in its avenues of live oaks and its quintessentially southern gothic look. It transcends time with its natural cathedrals, tombstones and sculptural gardens among the civil war heroes that are buried here. Along with the likes of local heroes: singer-songwriter Johnny Mercer and Pulitzer Prize winning author Conrad Aiken. It is here where Savannah shows her respect.http://www.pointsandtravel.com/savannah-ga-1000-times-love/
