Savannah is essentially built on a burial ground, but you still should take a stroll through Colonial Park Cemetery, which is known to be huanted. It's really beautiful and is also the final resting place of Button Gwinnett, one of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence.

Located in the historic district, this cemetery is fascinating as you stroll through and read the markers describing those interred there and the rolls they played in Savannah's histor.

Very peaceful with lots of great stories waiting to be read. Some of the inscriptions have worn away with time so it's a bit of a treasure to find a legible one but totally worth it.

Really interesting history wise but a little dull visually. I am a cemetery snob though.

Most of Savannah looks to the casual visitor like it dates from just around the time of the Civil War. In truth, though, Savannah is the founding city of Georgia and traces its roots all the way back to the mid 18th Century. Colonial Park Cemetery is one of the few vestiges of that colonial heritage. The grave stones are broken and weathered but the place still feels quite peaceful.

The Colonial Park Cemetary is within walking distance of downtown Savannah. Many of the graves date back prior to the Civil War. It's an interesting walk and gives insight into Savannah's history.

Old Town is pure American history, find a hotel in the old city and enjoy the planned streets, gardens and ghosts. Do not forget to visit the cemetery
