If you’re looking for a new kind of activity on vacation, a ghost tour can be very exciting, and often very informative. There are ghost tours in many large cities, but it is said that Vancouver, Washington is extremely haunted, and therefore has the best ghost tours. Tours in this great city are very affordable, and there is more than one company offering fun city-wide tours, so there’s almost always a tour going on.
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, taking a ghost tour is quite entertaining, and it allows you to truly learn the history of a city. And you don’t just learn boring facts – you visit the locations where the events actually happened, and if the tour guide is good enough, you can actually start to visualize the events happening before your eyes. Plus, you get to see areas of the city that you would never see normally. Most tourists just see the main attractions in an area. When you take a ghost tour, you learn the somewhat secret, lesser-known locations that only locals know.
While I wouldn’t base my entire vacation around a ghost tour, I do recommend taking one as part of your vacation to beautiful Vancouver. A ghost tour is a fun, healthy alternative to most forms of evening entertainment, and it’s something the whole family can enjoy. Even if you’re not visiting Vancouver, check for ghost tours in the area you are visiting. As mentioned, most major cities have them, it’s just a matter of how good they are and how “haunted” the area is. Some people claim to have legitimate paranormal experiences on these tours, while others simply enjoy the information and overall experience. Regardless, it’s a fun way to spend an evening.
