Fort Pulaski, famous for being a safe haven for enslaved African Americans, has now been converted into a national monument where visitors can learn more about the city’s heritage. Among the most unique destinations in Savannah is the 100-year-old Bonaventure Cemetery, which serves as the final resting place for many famous people.
