The ghastly guides of Ghost Tours Texas lead groups of foolhardy interlopers on story-filled journeys past the spectrally inhabited landmarks of Galveston and Houston Heights. On the Galveston tour, a knowledgeable leader takes parties through the Silk Stocking District to visit the 1858 Ashton Villa mansion, whose second floor is occupied by the phantom “Miss Betty” Brown, and whose basement is occupied by a man who years ago forgot how to work a doorknob. The guide also divulges tales told from eyewitness accounts.

The Houston Heights tour winds through the area's historical and opulent homes, exploring such mysteries as the story of the Dean Correl murders and the children who are said to still haunt the alleyways of Houston Heights. Guides weave tales of ghostly possessions and evil voodoo dolls peppered with real-life testimonies from local residents.

In 1910, Louis Bush led his first tour of Washington, DC, loading passengers into the refurbished chassis of a Mack truck that he had painted blue and gray. From this humble beginning, Louis expanded his Gray Line tours throughout the United States and abroad. The company currently hosts tours in more than 700 destinations across six continents and all three moons. However, Gray Line's expansive international scope isn't nearly as important as its commitment to a narrow, regional focus. Each tour aims to introduce visitors to some distinctive facet of the city's identity, from the ghosts of Savannah, Georgia’s, historic district to the towering redwoods of San Francisco’s Muir Woods. During the chauffeured sojourns, guides dole out intriguing tidbits of local knowledge, giving the groups some invaluable insight into the areas’ histories and cultures.

Before John Lintner began leading jogging tours past the sculpture garden at the Dallas Museum of Art and the gothic splendor of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, he was bustling with tour groups along the Mississippi River bluffs in Memphis. Aside from being an invigorating workout, running is his favorite way to charge into a new city’s atmosphere and history. So when he moved to Dallas, it was only natural that he’d keep his stride and offer tours of his new home.

As John sees it, his style of “sight-jogging” offers several advantages over bus, walking, or swimming tours. The expeditions get people off "the boring treadmill" and help them keep up their exercise routine on vacation so that later they can "enjoy [a] steak or tex-mex without the guilt." During the tour, John's interesting facts and offbeat anecdotes about the Deep Ellum neighborhood and Dealey Plaza keep the mind energized during 4- or 6-mile runs. The storytelling is crucial: "Without his narration, I couldn't make it past mile three," a Washington Post reporter confessed after attending a pair of John’s Memphis runs.

John describes the pace of his sight-jogs as "laid-back, not push, push, push”; they accommodate most skill and fitness levels. That’s partly because he himself hasn't always been a runner. Though he's now a seven-time marathon finisher, it was only a few years ago that he began running as part of a battle against a substance addiction he picked up in a stressful nursing job. It allowed me to channel my anger into something awesome,” he told Runner's World, who profiled his turnaround. If anything, he says, running has become even more essential to his life today: it’s "a way of life, a philosophy . . . It's very real. I sweat, and I feel it, and I love it."

Originally a TWA aircraft, the Southern Cross Douglas C-47 was adopted by the Army Air Corps to shuttle troops to the front. The twin-propeller plane survived World War II and in the ensuing years underwent a series of makeovers. Its career includes years spent as a reliable set of wings for Delta Air Lines, a troupe of skydiving enthusiasts, and at least one head of state. The C-47 is now meticulously restored to its original WWII-era condition and in the dutiful care of Greatest Generation Aircraft, a nonprofit organization that introduces 21st-century crowds to the C-47 during rides and aerial shows.
