Bipedalism makes human walking tours infinitely more exciting than squirrel walking tours, which focus primarily on the color of dirt and how bronze statues’ feet taste. Observe Gettysburg upright with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two tickets to the candlelight ghost towne tour from Sleepy Hollow of Gettysburg in Gettysburg (a $16 value). One child aged seven or younger can be admitted free with each paying adult. Tours depart from the Historic Dobbin House nightly at 8:30 p.m.
Sleepy Hollow of Gettysburg's candlelight ghost tours shepherd guests in search of specters through the spooky historic district under the cover of night. As the sun dips below the horizon, tourgoers follow their costumed guide on a 90-minute journey, tiptoeing down the same streets where soldiers marched more than a century ago. The captivating chaperones⎯with more than 50 years combined storytelling experience⎯recount eerie tales, ghostly legends, and firsthand experiences about the reappearing spirits of yesteryear and the android ghosts of the future. Adventurous souls walk through some of the most haunted territory in Gettysburg, running the spine-chilling risk of encountering phantoms along the route. During the 3–5-block trek, guides also chronicle facts about the history-steeped town, famous for the Gettysburg Address, which preempted regular network television programming in 1863.
