Other than ghosts, the only things that can successfully haunt us are the transcendent beauty of late '80s hi-top fade haircuts and the ceaseless, everlasting threat of the Y2K bug. Enjoy the traditional haunt of a good wraith with today’s deal: for $10, you get one ticket to the Ghost Tour from Better Tours of Asheville (a $20 value for adults; admission for children under 14 is already $10). Ghost Tours last 90 minutes and are available Friday and Saturday nights. Call ahead to learn availability, tour times, and meeting locations.
Like all of the Better Tours, the Ghost Tour is led by qualified experts on the subject—in this case, paranormal investigators who have been featured on the National Geographic Channel and who know where to find the city’s spectral population. You’ll visit such macabre landmarks as the Battery Park Hotel murder scene and Hell’s Half Acre, the site of Asheville’s largest killing spree. With the Ghost Tour's supernatural-savvy guides leading the way, you can be on the lookout for bone-chilling ghosts or less-menacing spooks who chose to hang out in hopes of seeing the rumored Wilford Brimley-anchored The Internet: The Movie.

Better Tours of Asheville
The guides who founded Better Tours of Asheville draw on experience leading excursions in far-flung locations in Puerto Rico, France, and Italy. Now, they accompany groups past the basilica and other historical buildings in the town, delivering stories developed through constant research and an ability to smell fossils. The guides divulge colorful tidbits of local history during pub crawls through storied taverns with group drink specials and allude to haunting tragedies along ghost tours that occasionally yield eerie photos of orbs, wisps, and buildings an inch from where they normally are.
