Spooky is the most neglected of the five basic human emotions: spooky, joy, sorrow, grouchy, and wet. Get horror glands pumping with todays Groupon from Walks in History. Choose between the following options:
Paranormal researcher Geordie Buxton, co-author of three books on Charleston's population of roaming spirits, guide daytime haunted-harbor tours, detailing legends of famous pirate ghosts and maritime phenomena. Groups converge at the intersection of Broad Street and Meeting Street, toting cameras and ectoplasmic shrimp nets, and set off upon the cobblestone roads to view fiveeight spirit-heavy locales in the 17th-century walled city. Tiptoe past some of Charleston's oldest standing structures, such as the Pink House, a 1700s tavern where Blackbeard downed his rum, and the Mariner's Church, a public pirate gallows and the execution site of "Gentlemen Pirate" Stede Bonnet. Buxton and Macy also steer attendees along the water for harbor vistas overlooking forts and islands, reciting the myths of Fort Sumter and the ghastly limericks of Castle Pinckney.
After their eerie strolls, visitors can pick up a copy of Haunted Harbor: Charleston's Maritime Ghosts and the Unexplained to tutor themselves in otherworldly history and practice cheeky spine-cracking. Walkers should arrive at least 15 minutes early to check in to their 90-minute jaunt, which covers approximately a mile of specter-infested road.
