Though friendly ghosts may exist, most are inevitably cranky because they must share cramped dorms with fallen Pac-Man enemies, who are notorious for their shaving cream pranks and snoring. Awaken well-rested spooks with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get a Haunted Footsteps Ghost Tour of Salem from Salem Historical Tours (a $14 value). Tours are offered at 8 p.m., seven nights a week, and phone reservations are required.
Salem Historical Tours provides curious citizens and brave ghost busters with the area’s original ghostly stroll. The Haunted Footsteps Ghost Tour combs the streets and corners of Salem for specters, ghouls, and the slimy signs of a visit from the ghosts in the Ecto-Cooler. This specific tour focuses on Salem’s undead denizens, backtracking paranormal lore to around the 17th century. The tour combines valuable historical trivia, mesmerizing storytelling, and the chance to take in Salem landmarks that once hosted supernatural foul play or Victorian dinner parties leading to murder, as all Victorian dinner parties traditionally did.
A knowledgeable, ghost-friendly guide will lead each tour, sharing secrets of Salem’s sordid history of witchcraft while letting the tour's younger participants chime in with any superfluous, macabre cackles that will make the story more chilling. The Haunted Footsteps Ghost Tour delights paranormal purveyors of any age or ghostly predilection. Use today’s Groupon for spooky sights, lurid tales, and a chance to bond over a soundtrack of weird-sounding wails that are either a ghost’s welcome or his mild lament for a lost set of transparent car keys.
