5. Windsor Hotel, Americus, GA

An overnight stay in one of the Peach State’s most haunted places will make this Halloween season unforgettable. Guests have reported hearing a girl’s laughter ringing down the halls. Eerily, in the inn’s early days a housekeeper and her daughter were pushed down an elevator shaft, and it’s believed that the laughing ghost is that of the young girl. Ghost hunters have tapped the area for paranormal activity and its readings were off the charts. 

6. Blue Orb Savannah Ghost Tour, Savannah, GA

Given Savannah’s rich coastal history, it’s no wonder the area is brimming with frightening true tales and legends of famous haunts. You can experience them up close and personal on the Blue Orb Savannah Ghost Tour. Take your pick of three distinct tours, including the adults-only zombie tour that takes you through Savannah’s history of voodoo and hoodoo communities.
