What You'll Get
Ghosts are like friends from college—they show up unannounced, hang out in your apartment for days on end, and, when you ask for rent after a month or so, they attempt to pay in pirate bones and then disappear. Enjoy a ghostly experience without concern for utility bills with today's Groupon: for $7, you get one admission to the Beyond the Grave tour from Carolina History & Haunts (up to a $15 value). Tours start at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and meet in front of the Hearst Tower on Tryon Street in Charlotte. This deal is not valid on Oct. 30 or Oct. 31.
The 75-minute Beyond the Grave tour (normally $15 for adults, $13 for ages 8–12, and free for ages 7 and under) blends historical fact with haunting tales of local lore. Your lantern-toting tour guide, donned in authentic 19th-century regalia but free of authentic 19th-century cholera, will lead groups of about 40 through the moonlit streets of Charlotte, dishing out educational facts and chilling stories revealed by longtime residents of the Queen City. Learn the chilling truth behind the Spirit Square Center for the Arts and the 1927 Carolina Theatre, then bravely visit a liver-chilling haunted pub. You’ll also stop by several eerie spots in the historical 4th Ward, including the old graves in Settlers’ Cemetery and Dracula’s summer condo.
The Beyond the Grave tour is a walking tour, so ghost-hunters should dress appropriately—wear comfy walking shoes and leave bulky proton packs at the converted firehouse. Call to make your reservation today.

Although there aren't many online reviews for the Beyond the Grave tour, it was featured by Yes! Weekly:
- While Riedel possesses no personal stories about ghost sightings, he says that past tour members send pictures featuring questionable orb-like images. One tour member even claimed to see an apparition crossing the train tracks during one of the full-moon tours. – Lindsay Craven, Yes! Weekly
