With hundreds of ancient cemeteries, historic sites, and old-world neighborhoods, Boston is a hauntingly beautiful city when the sun goes down. The charming streets turn into a spooky canvas that captures the city's mysterious side. If you want to explore seriously scary tales and legends of Boston during the Halloween season, take the Ghosts & Gravestones Tour that wanders through the city for a memorable experience after dark.
Take a stroll down Boston's ghostly side with this tour led by entertaining guides who are experts on all things creepy. Along the way, you can hear scary tales involving infamous characters like the Angel of Death, the Boston Strangler and Cotton Mather of the Salem witch trials. Or how about a murderous opera diva, homicidal nanny and countless cursed Bostonians that have haunted the city's streets for centuries? Walk among the dead as you visit graveyards dating back over 400 years. Listen to eerie stories of those that lie below your feet, including a spine-chilling tale of the largest grave robbing incident in all of New England. Graveyards on the tour include King's Chapel Burying Ground, the oldest in the city, Copp's Hill Burying Ground in the North End and the Granary Burying Ground.
Reservations are required for the tour, and groups meet at the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel at 200 Atlantic Avenue, just a 10-minute walk from our hotel along the beautiful waterfront. Tours last about 1 hour and 30 minutes and may not be suitable for kids under 13 due to the scary content.
