Romantic Gardens of Savannah and Charleston!

10 Comments

A trip to the southern historic districts of Charleston and Savannah is incomplete without visiting some of the oldest and most romantic gardens. During my trip to these two cities, some of the famous parks and gardens were in the top of my list of things to do. I was there for a short period of time and could visit three famous landmarks.

Forsyth Park is situated in the heart of the little city, Savannah is known for its fountain which was built in 1858 and resembles the fountains in Peru and Paris. The sight of the beautiful Spanish Moss hanging from the huge trees is just splendid. I visited the park in the middle of December and it was still so pleasant and warm to stroll around the park. The people were very friendly and the overall vibe of the park was lovely.

The oldest public garden of America, Magnolia Plantation and Garden in Charleston is one of the most romantic gardens I have ever been to. It is a huge garden with romantic bridges, giant trees with Spanish Moss and swamp lands. There are different trails that one could take to explore the garden. I loved walking on the white bridge and the swamp plantation around it.

Middleton Place is a land based plantation that overlooks the river and stands right next to the Magnolia plantation. There are horse carriage rides that takes tourists around the garden and provides brief history of these old garden. The best time to visit these gardens is spring and fall. I always try and fit in nature in one form or other into my trips because I have a special inclination towards mother nature. Is there anything you feel about strongly and manage to include in all your trips? Do share. I would love to read.
