From war, disease, fires and slavery to dueling, lover's spats, murder and magic, Savannah's hauntings seemingly rise from every street corner. Our 3D birds-eye-view panoramic map gives you the big picture of where the most intriguing of these strange tales originate. Folded map size is 4x9 and opens into a stunning 18x27 poster. The reverse side functions as a self-guided tour map showing 41 distinct haunted locations with easy-to-find map grid locations. Included are museums and attractions, top-ranked ghost tour companies, and information on free public transportation and docking regulations. We've also included a regional map to get you from the airport and I-95 all the way to Tybee Island. Look, listen, and live each moment as you journey through America's Most Haunted City and connect with her past. But take heed, traveler: who knows what you'll conjure up.
Note on compass: NORTH is on the bottom of the Savannah Historic and Haunted maps because of the historical significance of the riverfront area. This area is what draws over 13 million visitors each year and what has turned the city around economically since the late 1970s. Illustrative maps of other cities move compass directions when there is a specific tourism area that needs to be marketed to. There would be no Savannah Historic District if not for those businesses along the river. It's where her riches came from dating back to the early 1700s. A vast majority of the incredible 19th century birds-eye-view maps of Savannah also show her in this non-traditional, north on bottom, format. Once you get your orientation adjusted, this map is all you'll need for wayfinding.
Note on DOT routes: The free DOT shuttle and bus routes on the back of the Savannah Historic and Haunted maps were changed by the city after the maps were printed. Please visit connectonthedot.com for the latest routes. Once our map inventory is depleted, we will update the printings with the new routes.

Having been one of the principal founders and builders of Savannah's ghost touring trade, I can tell you this product has been long over due for explorers in the market. One can take ghost tours all day and read all of the ghost books, but to have everything at a glance in such a devoted map guide, is really the icing in this kind of interest in Savannah. --Shannon Scott, After Hours Cemetery Tours
