Mysterious fires. An old bank vault that can’t be destroyed. A deceased opera singer who refuses to draw the curtain on the living world. These are the stories that Houston Ghost Tour’s seasoned phantom chasers impart to mortals as they guide them to local nooks and crannies where spectral squatters may dwell. Guests on the Houston tour tiptoe through the ghostly grounds of Rice University and explore Hermann Park, where the songs from Miller Outdoor Theatre and animalistic shrieks from the Houston Zoo converge to form an eerie soundtrack for sleuthing. Travelers drink in local history during the Old Town Spring adventure, which teems with tales of Civil War battles, high-stakes gambling bets, and brothels filled with the ghosts of bats forever tangled up in lingerie. Along the way, guests can also glimpse the bullet holes of a bank robbed by Bonnie and Clyde. The Tomball tour explores a paranormal train depot and a cemetery that, like an igloo made of dry ice, is said to have vanished into thin air.
After a brief training session, the expert guides of Segway-authorized SegCity Houston herd up to eight gliders perched effortlessly atop Segway I2s. All mechanical roadsters are designed to handle the rocky off-road terrains of the Trail Blazin' tour, which weaves through forest trails dappled with sunlight. The Adventure Trail tour grants riders a behind-the-scenes peek at Burroughs Park as they whir past trees, humming wildlife, and a sparkling lake. Tours safely run rain or shine, only halting for exceptionally icy or stormy weather or passing herds of lake monsters.
Blooming from a family-run arts-and-crafts business more than a quarter century ago, Woodland Art & Frame now focuses on accentuating masterpieces with complementary borders. Aside from performing traditional services, such as dry-mounting posters and retouching oil paintings, certified framers enlist a virtual framer program to help patrons visualize their artwork in different mattes, frames, and ’80s hairstyles before finalizing selections. Framers also transform flat-screen TVs into functional artwork by crafting screen-hugging frames, and sometimes visit homes or offices to assess aesthetic needs.

With two near-death experiences, several haunted residences, and an adolescence spent guiding informal ghost tours under her belt, Haunted Houston Tours’ founder Kasey Clark is a self-professed ghost magnet. After a lackluster ghost-tour experience sparked an eerie ambition in Kasey’s heart, she dedicated her life to chasing ghosts. She refused to construct tours that relied on theatrical fabrications of most ghost tours. Instead, she founded Haunted Houston to explore the rich history of spooky, well-documented hauntings.
Kasey and her team of engaging guides—who boast more than 200 years of combined experience and study of the paranormal—lead well-researched tours and immersive ghost hunts based on historical facts that engage even the most devout skeptics. They shuffle off to Old Town Spring almost every night, creeping through haunted streets and graveyard paths while investigating stories of death, murder, disease, war, and cookie theft.
