In this adult-rated tour, a university professor leads tour-goers past historic Philadelphia sites, such as City Tavern and Independence Hall while sharing chilling tales and searching for paranormal activity in places like Walnut Street Prison, Surgeon's Hall, and George Washington's home. Departing from the Independence Visitor Center at 7 p.m., each tour lasts a little more than 90 minutes.
Though Washington, DC, has taken Philadelphia's place as the capital of the United States, it remains a bustling metropolis rich with American history. Grim Philly's tour guides—all of whom have at least a bachelor's degree in history—dredge up past centuries' landmark events and scandals, even ghosts and pirates, during their 75-minute walking tours, which made the Philly Hot List three years in a row. Their narration blends historical facts and local insight, with stops at a theater that was once a prostitution mecca for working girls of the night, the site of the first bank robbery, and Independence Hall.
