Walking tours explore intriguing surroundings at a leisurely pace, much like a photography class held in a thick bog of quicksand. Let it all sink in with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a historical ghost tour for two from Footsteps to the Past in Alexandria (up to a $20 value). Admission is $5 for children between ages 7–12 years.
Footsteps to the Past's professional guides compel patrons to traverse eerie avenues of city history in 60-minute tours in which they promenade along paranormal landmarks and discover startling tales about former Alexandria residents. While delving into documented cases of ghost activity and learning about George Washington's phantom wig, guests will have the opportunity to take pictures in search of acquiring their own bits of ghastly evidence.
Primitive 18th century medical practices and acts of betrayal will also be unveiled to guests during each cringeworthy carousing session. Tours depart each weekend from the Ramsay House Visitor Center and proceed to take visitors on a historical hunting trip, without requiring them to wear pantaloon camouflage or mimic founding-father courting calls.
