If there is another historic city I love almost as much as St. Augustine, it’s Savannah Georgia. I love this city so much I generally visit it once a year. A Halloween Beach Trip Savannah Georgia is where I go!
Savannah is chock-full of history so what BETTER beach city to visit on Halloween? If you have ever visited this city, you know first hand how cool the historic homes are but what about the cemeteries?
I don’t know what it is about cemeteries, but I can literally spend hours walking through them. The unique headstones are not only something to see but to read as well. All the cemeteries are must see, but there are two that are my favorites:
First the Bonaventure Cemetery. Not in the thick of things but definitely a must-visit – especially on Halloween. This cemetery began in 1846 as a privately owned cemetery – The Evergreen. The gorgeous Live Oaks and other trees draped with Spanish Moss throughout the cemetery gently stand guard over the plots. Not spooky during the day but definitely spine tingling to visit after dark.
The second absolutely MUST visit cemetery and the one I love to visit every time I’m in Savannah is Colonial Park Cemetery. This cemetery was established in 1750, but it’s the history that is so fascinating. In 1789, it became the cemetery of all denominations and Button Gwinnet, a signer of the Declaration of Independence is buried here.
But the history continues. Buried in this beautiful cemetery are the more than 720 victims of Yellow Fever in 1820. Colonial Park Cemetery is home to Savannah’s famous ghosts. You can take a night walking tour through the cemetery – super fun on Halloween night.
In addition to the cemeteries, be sure to visit Mercer Williams House, 432 Abercorn Street, Andrew Low House, The Davenport House, and The Haunted Owens-Thomas House. All of these historic homes have recorded ghost sightings and paranormal activity. Truthfully? I’d take the ghost tour. SO worth it!
I like to use TripAdvisor for booking not only my hotels, but my tickets and rental cars as well. Makes life so much easier with only having to log into one location for my information.
