Due to the large number of ghosts they can hold, haunted houses are consistently scarier than cursed sleeping bags, possessed lean-tos, and ectoplasmic studio apartments. Explore a spectral abode with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a haunted tour of the Sorrel-Weed House on West Harris Street (a $20 value). Three 90-minute tours are available nightly at 6:30 p.m., 8:30 p.m., and 10:30 p.m.

The Sorrel-Weed House is a stately antebellum mansion by day with a dark history of paranormal activity at night. Skeptical myth busters and mythical ghost busters alike can visit to hear stories of Savannah’s shaded side as they are led through the Colonial Park Cemetery, and tour-goers then spend an hour inside the gloomy house where Matilda Sorrel leapt to her death from an upper balcony and the carriage house where Molly, the head servant, was found hanging from the ceiling. Pesky poltergeists have been reported to open cabinets, slam doors, and run near the pool, exasperating a ghostly lifeguard whose piercing whistle blow and floating Speedo are equally terrifying. An infrared room in the basement is equipped with EMF detectors to record any paranormal activity that might occur. Guests can also bring their own cameras and audio equipment to immortalize their experiences and whoops of fun terror.

Sorrel-Weed House

The opening scene of Forrest Gump follows a feather as it floats above Savannah's rooftops, a view seen from the Sorrel-Weed House, where the scene was filmed. Completed between 1839 and 1840, the now-iconic building was distinguished as a state landmark in 1954—only the second house in Georgia to receive that honor. Today, during historic tours, guests patter down the same corridors where onetime houseguest General Robert E. Lee once practiced hacky sack, or track spirits during ghostly explorations of the home's creepy quarters. Southern history pervades each visit as guests catch glimpses of the house’s antique decor and Greek revival architecture.

Great spooky night tour.

Great place to go ghost hunting! Take lots of pictures. You will be amazed once you print them. I was so tickled to save so much on the tickets as I watched others pay full price! A definite must see place when visiting Savannah!
