October is the month for ghouls and ghosts and all things spooky. What better way to get into the Halloween mood than to take a ghost tour? I’m talking real ghosts, in places where people claim to have experienced apparitions. We’ve dug into our archives and found three ghost tours that we’ve taken over the past few years in Midwest cities. Although we haven’t seen or heard any ghosts, the stories we heard on the tours have me believing.
What better place to hold a murder mystery dinner than a haunted castle, especially as a prelude to a ghost tour? A murder mystery would certainly set the mood for the haunted tour that we would attend later that night. We approached the daunting limestone Pythian Castle just before dusk, walking up the stairs toward the massive wooden entrance doors.
