I love tours and tours in DC are never disappointing. There is always something to learn and something to see, over all it’s a wonderful time. I bring you three Ghost Tours that DC has to offer. Granted I haven’t been on one yet, the reviews say they are some one scary. These tours will dive into the ghostly history of DC. What are you waiting for?
National Building Museum Ghost Tour
This tour is recommended for ages 10 and up, so feel free to bring your kids along on this one. Tales of mystery, murder and ghosts are just a few of the things you can expect to hear. If legend is to be believed, you may see a few things of interest as well.
Tours are offered weekly in the fall, so visit the museum site for more details.
Natalie Zanin’s Ghost Story Tour of Washington
Started in 2001, this tour bills itself as the district’s longest running ghost tour. They must be doing something right (or wrong, to keep having these undead spirits haunting around them all the time). The Ghost Story Tour is another family-friendly attraction (children age eight and older are welcome). Purchase tickets online here.
Washington, DC Ghost Tour
These tours are getting more and more family-oriented. The Washington D.C. Ghost Tour prides itself on providing accurate information on the rich (and sometimes scary) history of the nation’s capital. The tour takes place in Lafayette Park, which is also known by the less inviting “Tragedy Square,” and seeks to be one of the most creepily informative tours you’ll ever take.
Tickets can be purchased online here.
Fright at the Museum: Dead Man Walking
This sounds like so much fun! Fright at the Museum takes place at the Crime Museum in DC. The museum is turned into a haunted house, and said to be one of the scariest in the city.
Tickets can be purchases online here.
THE ZOO– of course they celebrate Halloween. Check out these awesome events.
Boo at the Zoo
October 25-27, 2013, 5:30-8:30 p.m. National Zoo, Washington, DC. Visit bats, spiders, owls, and other animals at the zoo while trick-or-treating. Enjoy animal encounters, keeper talks, festive decorations, and haunted trails at the annual National Zoo’s Halloween celebration. Costumed volunteers will hand out candy at more than 40 treat stations.
Night of the Living Zoo
October 30, 2013, 6:30 – 10 p.m. National Zoo, Washington DC. Wear your best costume while enjoying the zoo by moonlight. Experience bone-chilling and mind-boggling performance art including palm readers, fire eaters, talking bats, and illusionists. You must be at least 21 years old to attend this event. A valid ID is required for admission. This is an adults-only event.
With all of these awesome events going on in DC for Halloween, I will certainty get my fill. I can’t wait to go on a ghost tour, learn about the city’s history and to event step into a haunted house. For me Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and this year I will be celebrating properly.
