“Booooo” Y’all… Fall in America's Most Haunted City

T2F Note: We love Savannah! We're happy to wander around just soaking in her history and her charm. Although we have to admit we haven't seen any ghosts, we have no doubt the spirits of the past are still there today. Got a weekend urge to run? Run on down to Savannah and into her past.

Savannah, Est. 1733 is one of America’s oldest cities. Known for her charm, graciousness and good’ole southern hospitality, Savannah has been a popular vacation destination for the more than 6.9 million visitors who stroll her verdant squares and cobble stone streets each year.

Part of Savannah’s quirky and mysterious charm lies in her rich history, most of which is sprinkled with some unique flavor. Celebrated along with Savannah’s crowning accomplishments, come the tales and legends about the supernatural side of America’s Most Haunted City.

Available year round, Savannah’s Ghost Tours take visitors on a trip back through time with stories of pirates, lost loves and tales of woe. Local guides combine history and folklore with a tad of the supernatural into historical and entertaining tours.

In the fall, when the weather gets brisk and dusk comes a bit earlier, Savannah’s squares glow with lantern light as visiting ghost hunters walk the streets in search of ghost, goblins and other things that go “bump” in the night.

• The American Institute of Parapsychology named Savannah, America’s Most Haunted City.

• In October, preservation groups and tour companies offer a variety of graveyard tours where costumed performers re-live the tales of those buried in some of Georgia’s oldest cemeteries.

• The Haunted Pub Crawl is a great way to hear spooky stories told by some of Savannah’s bartenders and guides as pints of Guinness or the liquid libation of your choice are downed to subdue the goose bumps!

• The “Scandals” tour takes visitors though the tales and lives of some of Savannah’s more newsworthy indiscretions of the Victorian era.

• Several of Savannah’s historic restaurants and inns offer guests the opportunity to dine and reside with ghost. The 17 Hundred 90 Inn was named in 2004 as America’s Most Haunted Inn. Come spend the night with a specter or two … if you dare!

• Hearse Tours give you the opportunity to take the ride of your life in a converted hearse down Savannah’s cobblestone streets.
