As December 23, 2012, approaches, many Americans eagerly await the moment when Hades will emerge from the Underworld to recklessly devour raw egg. Until then, get access to the world of the beyond with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the Carolina History and Haunts candlelight walking tour (a $26 value).

The 90-minute candlelight walking tour will begin in front of the Melvin Municipal Building, and from there you’ll take a journey through Greensboro's most haunted haunts. A street- and story-wise guide, fully costumed in 19th-century attire, will lead you around Elm Street's historic district by the flickering lights of wax-rods. You'll also visit Blandwood Mansion to hear tales of its dearly departed who never quite departed over the centuries.

Tours are held every Friday and Saturday night beginning at 8 p.m., as well as on evenings when the moon is full. Reservations are required, so call ahead to reserve your spot. The fearless tour guides pledge to trudge forth rain or shine, so arrive prepared by robing yourself in your favorite rain slicker, when weather permits.

Carolina History & Haunts

Drawing from the more frightening pages of the area's history, Carolina History & Haunts’ guides lead lantern-lit tours of eerie and haunted locales. The Beyond the Grave tour braves uptown Charlotte’s paranormal avenues to learn the fates of the less fortunate and possibly even witness a prankster ghost grabbing a dog's tail as it's chased , while the “Nightmares Around Elm Street” tour sends groups through the specter-laden streets of Greensboro.

Carolina History & Haunts partners with local businesses to give tour goers discounts on accommodations and food, and large groups are eligible for discounted pricing and private tours.
