A university professor leads tour-goers past historic Philadelphia sites, such as City Tavern and Independence Hall, while sharing chilling tales and searching for paranormal activity. Departing from the Independence Visitor Center at 7 p.m., each tour lasts a little more than 90 minutes.
Though Philadelphia has ceded its place as the capital of the United States to Washington, DC, it remains a bustling metropolis rich with American history. Grim Philly's tour guides—all of whom have at least a bachelor's degree in history—dredge up past centuries' landmark events, scandals, ghosts, and pirates, on walking tours that have made the Philly Hot List three years in a row. Their narration blends historical facts and local insight while making stops at shadowy spots such as a theater that was once a mecca for ladies of the night, the site of the city's first bank robbery, or historic watering holes.
