  • LOVE a Good Ghost Story?

    by Casey | Posted on October 18th, 2012

    With more than 400 years under our belt, you can bet Virginia has some of the best ghost stories America has to offer. Walk along with a tour guide to encounter (or at least hear about) spirits from the past.

    Guided “ghost tours” take on a more authentic feel when walking some of America’s most historic sidewalks. The Haunts of Richmond tours use the Edgar Allan Poe Museum as the base for one of its nighttime walking tours.

    Colonial Williamsburg’s Peyton Randolph House and George Wythe House are considered to be among America’s most haunted abodes. Those are two of the stops on the Spooks and Legends Haunted Tours on which door knobs and shutters rattle and guests are met by costumed interpreters along their route.

    In Southwest Virginia Appalachian Ghostwalk Tours guide visitors through the streets of Abingdon and Bristol where famous ghost stories abound. Charlottesville’s Ghost Mystery Walking Tour is a tour with a twist. Guests are presented with the tale of a 1904 murder and try to solve the mystery of who’s guilty during the two-hour adventure.

    1. That sound pretty cool except I don’t know if I would enjoy people in costume while touring famous haunted places. I think it would be distracting. Still, anything paranormal is interesting to me:)
