Boston, a four hundred year old city has an interesting enough history with loads of unspeakable crimes, horror stories, ancient cemeteries, ghost sightings and haunted historic places to engage the interest of modern visitors. The ghoulishly popular Boston Ghosts and Gravestone Tour take visitors who like to be scared as a form of entertainment to walk among the dead in ancient burial grounds and to hear the ghastly stories of those who lie buried there. It is made even more interesting by the fact that historically Boston has had its share of high profile murderers.
The tour takes place after dark and includes Boston’s largest unmarked burial ground and the oldest burial grounds such as Copps Hill, Granary and King’s Chapel where some of the city’s oldest residents have been laid to rest. Boston harbor the scene of many a drowning accidental and otherwise, the Omni Parker House the city’s most haunted hotel and several sites of ghastly murders are also on the itinerary. The tour takes place regardless of rain or shine as it is said that ghosts turn out no matter what. Hear scandalous stories of body trading, torture and executions and the nefarious acts committed by the infamous Boston Strangler along with the history of the area. See gravestones of famous historical persons such as Paul Revere, John Hancock and Samuel Adams and plenty of ghosts mostly in Victorian garb, strangely painted ghostly faces and floating orbs sometimes accompanied by suitably strange noises. Visitors can enjoy old time trolley rides while some walking and stair climbing is also involved. While the tour may be scary it is also one of the most interesting ways to learn the history of a city that played an important role in shaping a nation’s future. The organizers are so confident about the efficacy of the tour that they even undertake to give money back to visitors who find it a disappointment.
