Embrace Spooky Season with an Annapolis Ghost Tour

The fall season in the northeast is always the best time of year to get into the Halloween spirit. There’s a chill in the air as the weather cools down, the leaves fall, and the night creeps in earlier. Spooky season combined with an abundance of historic buildings makes Annapolis an ideal city for a ghost tour. 

For a fun, unique outing during your fall trip to Annapolis, check out one of the many local ghost tours. From excursions with guided walking tours, pub crawls, and more, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. 

Historic Ghost Tours

May through September on Friday and Saturday nights, Annapolis ghost tours take guests through the narrow streets and historic sites of the city. These tours promise to include places that have seen “unexplained phenomena” as well as a stop at old St. Anne’s cemetery. Adding to the fun, the tour guides wear old-timey attire that’s reminiscent of the Revolutionary era.
