From the Pilgrim cemetary at Burial Hill to the shipwrecks that litter the Atlantic coast, Massachusetts has ghosts and legends older than the country itself. The experienced guides at Colonial Lantern Tours make it their mission to unearth these historical secrets, leading groups on walking tours that visit significant sites in Plymouth, Sandwich, and Boston. In addition to tracking down New England's best supernatural haunts, the guides also lead holiday-themed tours that explore bygone colonial traditions. Their Thanksgiving Stroll retraces the steps of the area's first Pilgrim settlers, and their Holiday Traditions in Old Plymouth tour warms groups with hot cocoa as they learn about early Christmas customs including the celebration of Forefather's Day and the mayor's annual winter leg-wrestling tournament.
