Spooky Ghost Tours

Ghost tours happen year-round, but October is surely the best month to partake in a haunting night tour. A city with a storied history like Washington, DC only enriches the tales of conspiracies, assassinations, crimes of passion, and unsolved mysteries. Be prepared for chills as you walk through some of the city’s oldest neighborhoods and most famous landmarks. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Here are some of the top ghost tours in the nation’s capital:

DC Ghost Tours
Join DC Ghost Tours in Capitol Hill or Lafayette Park for a ghost tour which is sure to give you the spooks! They pride themselves on telling historically accurate tales and engaging the tour group.

DC by Foot
Join Free Tours by Foot on a journey to the darker side for the historic, humorous and haunted on one of their Washington DC Ghost Tours. They offer four different themed ghost tours, and all are free, but you do need to reserve yourself a spot via their website.

Soul Strolls
The scariest place to be after twilight is a cemetery, without a doubt. Are you brave enough to join a ghost tour in Congressional Cemetery, DC’s most historic resting ground, with Soul Strolls?

Scary DC Tours
Scary DC offers two bone-chilling tours - Horror on the Hill and Lafayette Scare - and a Capitol Hill Pub Crawl. Started by a historian, a ghost tour with Scary DC is sure to educate as well as thrill you!

Nightly Spirits
This one’s for those of you in VA. Get your fill of the creeps in Old Town Alexandria or Washington, DC with Nightly Spirits. These ghost tours include stops at local watering holes, so be prepared for some downtime if you don’t imbibe. Not a tour to bring the children on.
