Savannah GA (1) – A Gorgeous City
What drew us to this particular place was our appreciation of the movie, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”. There was something about the heat and character of the city that was so pronounced in the film. We knew it had to be one of our vacation destinations. Not only the laid-back vibe made this trip most relaxing, but the history added interest and the passion of the paranormal added excitement.
The following photos are mainly shot in the Historic District which is full of charm and character.
Marshall House Hotel is known to be haunted. Once used as an Union Hospital, ghostly encountered were to be experienced in the basement of this hotel.

We encountered one of many ghost tours during our evening walks. This one stopped at this house the same time we were there. I tried to listen in to what the guide was saying but couldn’t capture anything. I didn’t think it was right listening in on a tour group that I didn’t pay for.
