From zombie tours that take you to filming sites of “the Walking Dead” to seeing where superheroes like Spiderman and Black Panther once stood, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy. 

2. Blue Orb Tours, Savannah, GA

As one of America’s most haunted cities, Savannah is no stranger to the supernatural. Their ghostly tours let you experience a little of their spooky history firsthand, showing you sites such as the cemetery that inspired Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The scariest part is that there’s plenty of truth to back these local legends, so watch your step...

Guests can tour the home and gardens and experience what it might have been like to live in Civil War times.
