We are now in October, the spookiest time of the year. Time to put out the pumpkins and black cats, and perhaps even take a road trip! There are great haunted houses and ghost tours all over the U.S. that can turn your typical Halloween into one that will give you goosebumps.
You might take a trip to Galveston, Texas, where ghost enthusiast and history buff Dash Beardsley will lead you on a walking tour of the haunted Strand District. Explore the 19th century infirmary where Civil War soldiers still stalk the halls, the bank where the ghost of a police officer murdered in a robbery still stands guard, and the railroad museum, frequented by a headless apparition. Photography is allowed and even encouraged—Beardsley claims that some of his guests have captured ghostly phenomena on film.
Another acclaimed ghost tour is the French Quarter Phantoms tour in New Orleans, which has been featured several times in the national media. Explore haunted cemeteries, grisly murders of days gone by, and voodoo curses, with humorous guides to lighten the mood. Tour groups are much smaller than average, ensuring you get a great view at every site and photo ops a-plenty. As if you needed an excuse to visit New Orleans.
