Our haunted city

Every so often, maybe you think you might want to do something a little different on the weekend. Not that it isn’t fun to go out to dinner, booze at your favorite bar, check out a movie, or go see a live band, but sometimes you want something a bit more off the beaten path.

You may already be quite aware that Chicago is a city that has its fair share of ghosts. But did you know you can take a little tour to check out those ghosts (or at least the spots where the ghosts are rumored to hang out)? Chicago Hauntings Ghost Tours will load you onto its Ghost Bus complete with a guide to check out some of the city’s most haunted spots, such as the Fort Dearborn Massacre site, the Iroquois Theater & Death Alley, Resurrection Mary (my own personal favorite Chicago ghost) sites, Hull House, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre site, and the Biograph Theater. You can even book a haunted pub crawl (booze and boos, together at last).

Having been on one of these tours myself, I can tell you it’s a treat for anyone interested in Chicago history, whether one believes in ghosts or is a confirmed skeptic. However, if you’d rather read about the city’s spirited residents, there are plenty of books you can check out, including Creepy Chicago, Muldoon, a True Chicago Ghost Story, and Chicago’s Street Guide to the Supernatural, to name but a few. Have a spooky weekend…
