Halloween in Savannah

The Spookiest little city in the South

Second to St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween feels quite appropriate in our haunted city. With the advantage of natural decorations of eerie Spanish moss and plenty of ghost-ridden antebellum homes, you are sure to find a Halloween experience for everyone in your family.

For a guaranteed spook factor…

As seen on HGTV and Syfy, the Sorrel-Weed House on Harris Street is known as the most haunted home in the city. For Halloween, the home will offer an authentic Ghost Hunting Experience, complete with professional ghost-hunting equipment.

3-4 hour investigations begin at 12 a.m. on October 25, 26, 30 and 31
Reservations required, $47/person

For ghosts of all ages…

Try the Savannah Ghosts and Ghouls Tour by Ghost City Tours. Every child under 12 receives a treat basket on a tour that is sure to delight both kids and adults.  October 26 – November 3 at 7 p.m., Prices vary by age

Just down the road in Odum, GA, Poppell Farms is hosting its 13th Annual Corn Maze and Haunted Forest. This day trip is worth the trip with activities like cow train rides, hayrides, steer roping and a petting zoo with ponies, llamas and donkeys.

For the bigger kids…

When Halloween rolls back around, you’re sure to find the cult classic, Rocky Horror Picture Show, somewhere in town. Enjoy performances at Club One, the home of Savannah’s own Lady Chablis.

October 25-27 and 31 from 7:30-10:00 p.m.

For Fido…

Your four-legged friend will thank you when you take him trick-or-treating with downtown Savannah’s participating shops. Pick up your map at Canine Palace at 612 Abercorn Street for a $5 donation to Dachshund Rescue of North America. Costumes welcome, of course!
