Going on a ghost tour is perhaps one of the most important steps before moving to the netherworld or subletting a necropolis. Begin exploring the domain of the dead with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get a ghost tour and museum admission for two at Paranormal Books and Curiosities in Asbury Park (up to a $26 value).
Voted one of the state's best museums by New Jersey Monthly readers, Paranormal Books and Curiosities tingles spines with creepy exhibits and spooky, 90-minute tours along the Jersey shore. Fright enthusiasts feel the icy touch of phantom fingers during a lantern-lit walk through the ghost-ridden streets of downtown Asbury Park. Tourists can also take a moonlit stroll along the boardwalk while absorbing the haunting tales of a doomed luxury liner and a mysteriously flammable theater, or head into Smithville's historic Village Greene for a chance encounter with the Pine Barrens’ shadow-stepping Jersey Devil and his terrifying harmonica solos.
Upon returning to the museum, guests peruse paranormal curiosities and drain the color from their faces with in-depth explorations of Ouija board history, ghost ships, the Jersey Devil, and vampires. Guides recommend that guests bring comfortable footwear and carry ghost prods at all times.
