- $20 for a Haunted Covington walking tour for two (a $40 value)
Led by a knowledgeable guide, this tour weaves through Covington's historic streets. Guests step inside two purportedly haunted mansions, learn about Civil War-era tensions, and hear other tales of the city's storied past. The tour runs through Saturday, October 26.
Covington's history comes to ghostly life during this seasonal walking tour. During each excursion, expert guides share disquieting tales of yesteryear, taking guests through sites of violent crimes, into a pair of supposedly haunted mansions, and past a particularly scary sheet hung up to dry. Stops of note include the Baker-Hunt Art and Cultural Center and streets once divided between slave-holding families and abolitionists.
American Legacy Tours
Initially designed as a temporary tour and fundraiser for student travel, American Legacy Tours began humbly as the Newport Gangster Tour in 2008. When met with overwhelming success, the friends who had embarked on what they thought was a temporary project decided to take root and expand, creating American Legacy Tours in 2010.
Their first order of business as an official company was to introduce the Queen City Underground Tour, an exploration of the city's underground tunnels and history as a rabbit village. Today, a cadre of educated guides leads 10 different area walking tours, including the Covington Is Haunted Tour, an examination of the controversy, spirits, and shadowy history of this Northern Kentucky neighborhood, as well as seasonal Spirit of Christmas Tours and Newport Is Haunted Tours held around Halloween.
