  • Savannah: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Walk

    9. Savannah: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Walk

    Who would have thought that a story about characters in a sleepy Southern enclave would have created the stir that John Berendt did with his non-fiction novel "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil"? Even the rumors whispered beneath dripping Spanish moss are enough to make a man blush, and it's all true! Just another day in this eccentric city? Savannah Walks is proud to present A Walk through Midnight, a saunter through the pages of Berendt's runaway 1994 bestseller, which Clint Eastwood made into a film in 1997. Guides offer personal insights and observations, as well as recently unearthed stories about the characters in what the people of Savannah have come to call "the book." Some of the guides were even extras in the movie! The guides also have special items of interest to show you along the way. Who knows? On some days you might even see some of the actual characters strolli...

    10. Savannah: History and Southern Hospitality Homes Walk

    The image of genteel Southern culture may or may not have been born in Savannah, but it surely lives on in this aristocratic city. This enchanting walk through the heart of the Historic District takes you inside one of Savannah's many beautiful historic homes, and focuses on the rich architectural heritage of the city's domestic dwellings. One place you'll see on this tour is the Owens-Thomas House, widely regarded as the premier example of regency architecture in the United States. You'll also see the Green Meldrim House, where General William T. Sherman was a "guest" during the Civil War. Other house highlights include discussions on the development of domestic dwellings in Savannah over two centuries. The tour includes admission to the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, consecrated as Savannah's first National Historic Landmark to honor the founder of the Girl Scouts.

    A very enjoyable tour that showed us the history of old Savannah through the years and as the homes changed over time
