85. Be a Ghost Hunter
From the cemeteries to bordellos to haunted mansions, Savannah has a reputation for having more than its fair share of ghosts and goose bumps, many of which have a basis in historical fact. Thus the city has earned the title from the American Institute of Parapsychology of “America’s Most Haunted City,” and has been filmed by television shows such as TAPS/Ghost Hunters and Scariest Places on Earth
Numerous Savannah tour operators offer guided ghost tours that lead you to the spirited side of the city with all its ghoulish legends, myths and hauntings. Go by trolley, van or on foot. Visit the fabled Sorrel-Weed House, the Pirate’s House Rum Cellar, the Hampton-Lilibridge House, or the spooky “Dead House,” an 1884 morgue tunnel under the old Candler Hospital that has been sealed for over 100 years.
Complimentary pick-up can be arranged at inns and hotels in the Historic District.
