Take one of Savannah's Midnight Book Tours
and discover the secrets of...
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
Despite all of the monumental preservation and restoration efforts in the historic district, Savannah remained relatively unknown until 1994. Almost overnight, this long neglected city became one of the hottest tourist destinations in the U.S. John Berendt’s bestselling book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, fascinated readers and revealed an intimate and mysterious side of Savannah that everyone wanted to experience for themselves.
While the book focuses on the murder trial of Jim Williams, a prominent antiques dealer, it draws attention to some of Savannah’s more unusual characters and social traditions. The book was made into a movie, directed by Clint Eastwood, and filmed in Savannah. It is doubtful that there has ever been another book with a greater impact on an American City. Tourists from all over the world flock to Savannah to see all the places mentioned in "The Book" and what better way than one of the Savannah's Midnight "Book" Tours.
