Ghosts & Gravestones Night Tour
Boston • Savannah • St. Augustine • Key West • San Diego
cast members dressed in period costume at graveyardWhen the sun goes down and the evening air begins to chill, even the most tranquil places on earth can become a bit eerie. Perhaps it’s just the blackened sky or the shadows that creep up all around you…or perhaps it’s the heaviness that fills the air when those from the other side begin to awaken. Discover for yourself what truly haunts five of America’s most legendary cities: Boston, Savannah, Key West, San Diego and St. Augustine. Board the Trolley of the Doomed and sit tight as the Ghosts & Gravestones Tour takes you on a journey through the spookiest places in the cities. You’ll hear first-hand accounts of murder and mystery and learn the facts from your Gravedigger Guide about the infamous spirits that never truly rested in peace. Walk cautiously through burial grounds that are over 400 years old in Boston, enter into River Street’s Perkins and Sons Ship Chandlery in Savannah, enter a fort and meet a doll with a mysterious curse in Key West, walk through sites of reported paranormal occurrences in San Diego and find out why the earliest St. Augustine residents feared being buried alive. It’s an evening of excitement, intrigue and fright, history and fun.
