What you can expect

Dig into Charleston's storied past as you tour the spooky side of the city's historic center. Then, step through the gates of the oldest cemetery in town to hear the tales of those who found their final resting place in “The Holy City.”

Begin your tour in the historic, colonial center of Charleston—these charming cobbled streets take on a new life at night. As the shadows shift around you, listen as your guide fills you in on some of the city's supernatural phenomena and ghostly tales.

From there, go beyond the wrought iron fence for a tour of the graves at Charleston's oldest cemetery after dark. Learn about the spirits that haunt this space, including Sue Howard, who grieves nightly at her dead child's tomb, and rebel warrior John C. Calhoun, who has been dancing in the streets with his wife for 150 years.

Hear about Charleston's questionable medical practices—doctors back in the day weren't risk takers, so if you were sick and fell asleep in a hospital, you had a good chance of waking up 6 feet under. Finally, discover cemetery lore as your guide explains terms such as “saved by the bell” and “graveyard shift” before you leave the gravesites behind.
