We love to travel. I’d be happy if my husband and the kids and I could jump in the car every weekend and drive somewhere. I don’t mind driving. In fact, it’s my peaceful time. Tim and the kids watch movies and sleep while I drive and think and listen t my own music as long as they are wearing headphones. That’s something I don’t do on an every day basis, or hardly ever, for that matter so going on trips is that much more exciting to me just because I get to drive, listen to adult music and relax.
Whether it’s an hour away from Atlanta or 12 hours, we try to expose the kids to as much as we can locally and not so locally. What we’ve realized in the last few years is that the kids really benefit from visiting local destinations, here in Georgia. We don’t have to travel across the country to provide the kids with an enriching, educational, or fun travel experience. We are looking forward to our upcoming trip to Savannah and there are some fun things going on that we want to share with you!
In a couple of weeks, we are going to visit Savannah where we’ll stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton. My son is particularly excited about the potential ghost sightings during the Ghost Tour, included in the Spook, Slumber, and Save package you’ll learn more about below. Savannah has a lot of history and he’s learned quite a bit about it from ghost shows and school.
DoubleTree by Hilton welcomes you to celebrate Halloween with them!
Below is a round-up of spooky and sweet happenings during the month of October.

There might be a few ghosts lurking around…
- Guests frequently report ghost incidents at The Emily Morgan Hotel, a DoubleTree by Hilton as of December 12, 2012. Adjacently located from the Rivercenter Mall, the view of the hotel is clear from the mall. The mall security cameras caught a woman who appears in the same room around the same time every night. The woman looks out the windows then closes the curtains.
- Employees and guests of the DoubleTree by Hilton London – West End spotted a little girl ghost that dresses in white Victorian clothing. She has been seen sitting at the end of beds in guest rooms and on top the shelves near the concierge, swinging her legs back and forth.
