Savannah: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Walk

1. 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 strolling about the city! No other "book tour" gets you as close as this!

Savannah: City Ghosts Exploration Game

2. Savannah: City Ghosts Exploration Game

Discover Savannah’s haunted spots while playing the role of an amateur paranormal investigator. You have only been in the field for a few months and are starting to lose hope that you might ever find any evidence of the paranormal. As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. Ready for an adventure? After your booking you will receive an email with instructions on how to download and play the game on your phone. Head to Forsyth Fountain, where the game will start. It will take you between 1.5 to 2 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit so feel free to explore, and finish it at your own pace: pause the game and resume anytime from the location where you paused it. You will finish the game at the famous Waving Girl Statue. For larger groups, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to download and play the city game on their phone. Alternatively, each person can make their own purchase. You can play on your own, in a large group or in several smaller groups that compete against each other and meet at the final stop of the game.

Savannah's Urban Forest: the Gates and Gardens Tour

3. Savannah's Urban Forest: the Gates and Gardens Tour

Savannah's legacy as a garden city is firmly rooted in her humble beginnings as a novel agrarian experiment. Today, massive oaks shade stately squares and handcrafted iron gates grace elegant courtyards. This unique walking tour shows you what lies behind the gates of some of Savannah's finest homes. It lets you explore the fauna of this lush forest city. John Berendt, author of the bestseller “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” described walking through Savannah this way: "With twenty-two luscious green squares it is like strolling through the rooms of an elegant open air mansion.” Walking Magazine has rated Savannah "one of the 10 Best Walking Cities in America." The tree-lined streets, beautiful squares, magnificent parks and slow Southern pace make it an ideal location for the leisurely yet intimate feel that only a walking tour can provide.
