Savannah’s Haunted Attractions

Savannah's long history naturally lends itself to the possibilities of haunted mansions, streets, cemeteries, homes, and even hotels. Experience the thrill of a chilling walk or ride through the city's most haunted spots when you take part in one of Savannah’s many ghost tours. The Eliza Thompson House itself is one of many haunted homes in Savannah, but not to worry—our ghosts have a friendly reputation.  Want to see more rumored haunted houses and hotels in Savannah?  Visit our sister properties:  The Marshall House, East Bay Inn, and Olde Harbour Inn.

St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah, Georgia

Irish eyes are smiling every March 17 on St. Patrick's Day in Savannah! The city’s population nearly doubles every year as more than 200,000 visitors pack the Savannah streets and waterfront for St. Patrick's Day—"Savannah Style." The Eliza Thompson House is perfectly situated near the "greened" fountain at Forsyth Park, and is ideal for walking to the party, taking a break, and then re-joining the fun at your leisure.
