Fear is the secret to happy marriages, the sine qua non of lasting friendships, and the final ingredient in numerous madman-created serums. Embrace the anxiety with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a haunted walking tour from SeeSavannah Tours (a $20 value). Tickets for children age 6–14 are $7; children 5 and younger receive free admission when they are accompanied by a parent or the ghost of Lyndon Johnson.
To unearth the Hostess City's sub rosa spirits, the hauntings tour leads ghost hunters on spooky jaunts through the historic district. During one of two nightly excursions, a knowledgeable guide pieces together Savannah's scary past, filling minds with goose-fleshy stories of curses, voodoo, occult activity, and apparitional atmosphere. You'll hear evocative anecdotes about four unassuming yet ghoul-ridden domiciles, including the Owens-Thomas house on Oglethorpe Square and the Hampton-Lillibridge house, which survived the fire of 1820 by haunting the oncoming flames with visions of fire hoses.
