The world's first ghost tour was popular but short-lived; visitors enjoyed walking through walls, but didn't like the permanent side effect of being deceased. Enjoy an updated, living version of this tour with today's deal: for $6, you get a walking tour of downtown (a $13 value) from Tucson Ghost Tour, a Bisbee-based tour company. Bring along some water, a flashlight for chasing away the freak-outs, a camera for futile attempts to photograph specters, and the small, friendly ghost that's sick of being cooped up in your attic gibbet.
Tucson Ghost Tour provides walking tours of downtown's most haunted buildings during the evening's darkest hours. Experienced, knowledgeable guides conduct the tours, their brains stuffed to the neural gills with haunting tales of local lore. Don a pair of comfortable shoes and get ready to stroll past the phantoms at local landmarks, such as the ghost who may still come to see the plays at the Fox Theatre, the malingering guests at the Hotel Congress, and the glowing apparitions at the Scottish Rite building, who will probably become vastly irritated if you mention the English or try to capture them inside a bagpipe. Set your fear-nodes to "thrill" and tingle your spine with a night of haunting tales and urban exploration courtesy of Tucson Ghost Tour.
