Even for those who traffic in stories of the paranormal, Marilyn Egan is unusual. Where most ghost tours focus on vengeful spirits and doomed lovers, she believes that the ghosts of Delray Beach are happy ones. In an interview with the Sun Sentinel, Marilyn stated that the area's spirits aren't bound to the world of the living by curses or vengeance, but because they simply don't want to leave the pleasant village. There are some grim tales at hand, however; people who take the tours will hear tales of the 1903 sinking of the S.S. Inchulva just off the coast of Delray Beach, and of visits by notorious gangsters to the Colony Hotel. Tours also swing by such stops as the former Power's Lounge, Johnnie Brown's, The Blue Anchor Pub, and the tracks of the East Coast Railway in search of lingering spirits.
