Fort McAllister Historic Park

Fort McAllister is 1,725 acres of gorgeous Southern landscape, some stretches being adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, while other parts stretch along the Ogeechee River. Salt marshes and live oak trees dot the premises, but are ultimately just a backdrop to the real draw of the park: the best preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederate Army. Also located on the park's grounds is a museum which features civil war artifacts.

Cathedral of St. John the Baptist

There are plenty of marble columns, breathtaking stained glasswork in the windows, and ornate woodwork to wonder at.
