Halloween is the perfect time to be Spooky in Savannah (GA) with its Spanish moss, abundance of cemeteries, and haunted antebellum houses.
“With Savannah’s long history, it is no wonder the city has her fair share of ghosts and ghost stories. Savannah has thousands of eerie tales to tell,” according to the Savannah Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Spooky in Savannah
When visiting one of America’s Most Haunted Cities, it’s almost mandatory to take at least one of the dozens of ghosts tours. On one stopover, we hopped aboard the Trolley of the Doomed for the “Ghosts and Gravestones” tour. It was fun and entertaining, and it was packed. Click here to check out a few of the many walking tours of the ‘haunted’ hangouts in this beautiful port town.
