Saved from a fiery end by locals who surrendered their city to General Grant in 1864, and from the wrecking ball by restoration projects begun in 1955, Savannah is rightfully proud of its idyllic leafy squares, lined by elegant homes in a profusion of architectural styles. Stately oaks drip Spanish moss in the hauntingly beautiful Bonaventure Cemetery, and there are tales of ghosts aplenty refusing to depart from buildings all over town. Echoes of John Berendt’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil are everywhere. And life proceeds at its own lazy Southern pace, so find a veranda and relax with a mint julep – it would be unseemly to rush.
