For over 12 years, Tours & Crawls has been has been helping to keep the peace in Maryland homes over the holidays, providing relatives a way to beat cabin fever and get out of the house for a few entertaining hours. Their thrill-seeking guides lead walking ghost tours and pub crawls around the city's historical district, examining and explaining the lives of its long-dead citizens while occasionally enjoying each pubs' choicest sips. Tours eventually wind their way to the graveyard, where a guide recounts spine-tingling tales of the buried dead and their favorite back scratchers. They also lead craft-brewed beer tours and twisted history tavern tours that fill tour goers' heads with titillating tales of the Founding Fathers and the drinking game that wrote the Constitution.

Touring groups, clued in by a cast of live actors and cryptic puzzles, gallivant about the streets of downtown Gettysburg in an interactive quest for Lincoln's Lost Treasure. The escapade begins before the scavenger hunt-style romp, when a phone call reveals the hunt's secret starting point. Groups of up to 10 are commissioned by a wealthy, offbeat entrepreneur to locate a lost trove of treasury gold that Abraham Lincoln hinted at with his final breath. Set in modern-day Gettysburg, the plot then unfolds as teams sleuth through the historic downtown, traveling by foot or hoofing it via hover-chariot. Groups gather clues from an eccentric cast of characters, and dodge FBI agents out to foil the mission and ratchet up jaywalking arrests. During stops along the way, appetizers and two beverages refresh minds, enabling them to keep puzzling out clues throughout the 2-3 hour experience. The staff prefers that kids aged 10-15 be accompanied by adults, though youths as young as five have been known to join in the live action fun.

Even before Richard Naylor and his wife, Audrey, founded their winery in 1978, the Naylor family had been fascinated by the winemaking process. What began as a backyard vine-growing experiment first transitioned into an barrel-producing operation in a potato cellar. It then blossomed into today's idyllic Pennsylvania winery, full of vineyards, rows of wooden barrels, and a staff of friendly wine experts. Richard and his family lead groups through tours of the picturesque estate, imparting their wisdom about the fine varietals grown there, such as cabernet franc or chambourcin. Guests can sip fine vino during regular festivals and front-porch tastings, or they can experience live bands, competitive wine-tasting events, and even weddings in the welcoming, rustic setting of the Pavilion.

Where do you host a yearly gathering of mediums, ghost hunters, and other paranormal enthusiasts? Somewhere haunted. That's why, for the past several years, Phenomacon Central sets up shop at the Eisenhower Hotel. Located 5 miles away from Gettysburg National Military Park, the hotel is known for its paranormal activity, notably in and around its on-site farmhouse.

Throughout the four-day Phenomacon Central event, attendees can explore the haunted grounds during expert-led ghost hunts on Friday and Saturday at midnight. Moreover, they can pick the experts' brains during lectures such as the Violent Hauntings discussion hosted by Jason Gowin and featuring panelists Andrea and Roger Perron, Tony and Debra Pickman, Carmen Reed, and Chris Dedman. The event organizers supplement the paranormal activities with entertainment such as a concert from Evermore Paranormal, a costume party dubbed the Ghoul's Gala, and silver bullet Russian roulette with real-life werewolves.
