Savannah Halloween Activities For 2012

Savannah Georgia is said by some to be America's most haunted city.  It is, perhaps, for this reason that the city doesn't bother with the usual Halloween haunted house attractions.  Why bother setting up something fake when you have the real thing?  However, there are still plenty of fun activities offered in our beautiful city in the Halloween Spirit!  Member B and Bs of the Romantic Inns of Savannah welcome you to enjoy these less-traditional spook-tacular activities during your getaway.

What's Halloween without The Rocky Horror Picture Show?  From October 19, 2012 through November 2, 2012, the Bay Street Theatre invites you to again witness the spectacle that is Rocky Horror.  Brad Majors, Janet Weiss, Dr. Frankenfurter, and Rocky himself will all be there.  Will you?

Some of Savannah's favorite Ghost Tours are even more popular during October and Halloween.  While this is far from all of them, here are some of the more popular tours:

The Ghosts & Gravestones of Savannah Tour:  This 75-minute nighttime tour features a spooky trolley ride to explore both the Gribble House (the scene of a 1909 triple-murder), and the very haunted River Street Perkins and Sons Ship Chandelry - a location visited only by this particular PG-13-rated tour.  Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and no children under the age of 4 are allowed.

The Savannah Scary Ghost Tour takes you on a 90-minute trip to our city's most popular haunted locations, including the Colonial Park Cemetery, the Pirates' House, and the Hampton-Lilibridge House (one of the most haunted houses in Savannah).  You must make reservations at least 48 hours in advance for this tour.

The Sixth Sense Savannah Tour covers real-life locations of poltergeist, hag, exorcism, disembodied spirits, and more.  This 2-hour tour is offered at 7:00pm for families, and at 9:30pm for guests aged 18 and older only.

The Beyond Good and Evil Tour is a 90-minute walking tour to cemeteries, Calhoun Square, and the stories behind the popular book "Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil."  The stories are original, and the guide is very knowledgeable.

The Most Haunted House in Savannah tour takes you inside the Sorrel Weed House to explore the city's most haunted house first-hand.  Many reports of strange activities come from this particular tour.  Even TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society, as seen on SyFy) explored this location, making it their first Halloween special ever!

Special haunted tours do come out just at Halloween time:
  • The Savannah Midnight Ghost Tour explores the back streets of Savannah after midnight.  The tales told are definitely for mature audiences only.  Available from October 26, 2012 through November 3, 2012.
  • The Savannah Ghosts and Ghouls Tour is a family-oriented Halloween specialty.  Children 12 and under will be given a treat basket (please mention how many you are bringing), and with kid-friendly stories of some of the city's haunted locations.  Available from October 26, 2012 through November 3, 2012.
  • The Halloween Ghost-Hunting Experience at the Sorrel Weed House is an interactive, guided hunt with some of the same equipment used by TAPS to investigate this very site.  Available from October 19, 2012 through October 31, 2012.  Group size is limited to 15 people, and the tour lasts 3-4 hours, starting at 11:30pm.  Guests are welcome to bring their own ghost-hunting equipment to the tour as well.

With the old, Gothic feeling of Savannah adding to the atmosphere, what better place is there to visit around Halloween than our beautiful city?  Your Savannah Innkeeper can help you find the perfect activity for your tastes and scare-level.  Welcome to a fun Halloween in Savannah!
