On a bluff overlooking the Wilmington River, this 19th-century cemetery is renowned for its otherworldly loveliness. Visitors stroll its oak-lined paths, stopping to photograph spooky stone angels and lavish mausoleums dripping with Spanish moss. The cemetery gained national attention in 1994, where a sculpture known as the Bird Girl became the cover image of the bestselling book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." The Bird Girl was removed from the cemetery due to high traffic and is now in the Telfair Museum of Art. Don't worry, though, Bonaventure's 160 acres offer plenty of other scenic vistas.
