A city can be understood through its history, which explains Philadelphia's abundance of government buildings and why Los Angeles is constructed entirely on a soundstage. Delve into a city's bizarre past with today's Groupon: for $10, choose one of several ghost tours from Ghosts of New York (a $20 value by credit card or $25 in cash).

The licensed guides at Ghosts of New York usher guests on fun and spooky walking tours starring some of the city's most infamous sites. Explore the Big Apple's eerie side with Ghosts of the City, which seeks out the spirits of Walt Whitman, P.T. Barnum, and Joe Piscopo's career. Literary buffs will thrill to the pursuit of Edgar Allan Poe and fellow Greenwich Village specters Aaron Burr, Eleanor Roosevelt, and her pet dog Fala, said to be chasing its insubstantial tail to this day. Seekers of more modern frightening fare may opt for the Ghosts of the Upper West Side tour, which starts from the Ghostbusters building and moves on to highlight the haunts of Irving Berlin and John Lennon. Check out the calendar to plan your tour.

Ghosts of New York guides will describe paranormal encounters and teach haunting historical facts, furthering their claim that New York is America's most haunted city. Tours are appropriate for all ages, but special tours are also offered for smaller scare seekers. Each tour is 90 minutes long and covers less than a mile at an easy pace, providing ample time for your own spirit sighting or condiment-coated encounter with a hot-dog stand.
