The infamous Mercer House.
We watched Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (Clint Eastwood's first movie and a bit of a bore) upon our return to Minnesota. Read the book! It is much more scintillating, and it depicts more than the story of Jim Williams and the Mercer House, it reveals Savannah's delicious core.
Last week, I explained that my feelings for Charleston and Savannah resulted in an even tie. It’s a tough call: Savannah, verdant squares populated by ancient oaks dripping with moss, tourists, spirits—both liquid and ethereal—compelling characters wrangling to-go cups, oddball personalities, and lots of canines. Plus, everything else: pecans, gumbo, architecture, riverboats, pigs and shrimp, history.
Georgia's oldest city is the bird girl statue, balancing good and evil with Southern charm and finesse.
