Does the eerie intrigue you? Does the ghostly grab you? Does the mysterious make you want more? Then you might want to think about a vacation to Charleston, South Carolina, where there are multiple haunted tours for those who love the dark side. Here are just a few examples:
Ghost & Graveyard Walking Tour: This tour, offered by Bulldog Tours, takes visitors to some of the oldest and most haunted graveyards in Charleston, some of which are only available to visit through this tour. Visitors are encouraged to bring cameras with flash photography – you know, just in case any of those spirits arrive. You might even get a chance to say hi to one of them, such as Sue Howard, the spirit of a grieving mother. You will also investigate headstones, study the graves, and learn about the history of the dead, including the origins of terms like “saved by the bell.”
Ghosts of Liberty Tour: If you are looking to learn more about the bloodied, war-torn spirits of America’s history, this is the tour for you. Ghost City offers this tour throughout the streets of Charleston that retells the most famous ghost stories and battles of Charleston’s history. Learn about the haunted dungeons, restless spirits, and bloody battles that make the Holy City a landmark for paranormal enthusiasts.
Ghosts of Charleston Tour: This 80-minute tour from Tour Charleston takes guests on the oldest ghost tour in the area. The highlight of the tour is the exclusive visit to the Unitarian Church Graveyard, which, it has been said, has haunted visitors and tour guides since the tour began back in 1996. This is a great tour to take more than once, as there are many repeat guests who have experienced hauntings and who can tell their tale. Plus you never know what ghost will visit you each time. The tour guides also tell different stories each time, so no two tours are exactly the same.
Ghost Walk: The Ghost Walk is a tour headed by Tricia Goron, a local history buff who has been studying the lore and ghost stories of Charleston since she was in middle school. Her tours including viewing historic homes and gardens to stepping into haunted cemeteries and graveyards. You will hear the tales of the mysterious whistling heard in the streets or about the disappearance of Theodosia Burr Alston.
