Do you have an activity you always do in a specific city? I can’t imagine a trip to #Savannah that doesn’t include some type of #ghosttour. We’ve done them all: trolley tours, walking tours, carriage tours. I’m not the one taking pictures of all the mirrors, hoping to see an apparition in my photos. The paranormal isn’t why I love taking a ghost tour. For me, it’s the oral history and getting to see a city during a different time of day. We took the 9:20 tour the other night, and the sky was the perfect shade of twilight indigo, the street lamps bathed the squares in orange, and the stately houses were full of light and life. — #erikabennettwrites #savannah #savannahgeorgia #savannahga #trolleytour #ghostsandgravestonessavannah #andrewlowhouse #ghoststories #ghosttours #travel #travelgram #travelguide #sltravels #southern #thesouth #southernliving #southernlife #tour #history #ghost

Darkness falls across the land The midnight hour is close at hand Creatures crawl in search of blood To terrorize y’all’s neighborhood And whomsoever shall be found Without the soul for getting down Must stand and face the hounds of hell And rot inside a corpse’s shell The foulest stench is in the air The funk of forty thousand years And grisly ghouls from every tomb Are closing in to seal your doom And though you fight to stay alive Your body starts to shiver For no mere mortal can resist The evil of the thriller! #doorcountytrolley #doorcounty #moonlight #midnight #trolley #ghosttour #hauntedpubcrawl #thriller #nofilter #night #afterdark #doorcountyafterdark
