Kansas City Ghosts
Not just one place, but an entire city. This tour lasts about an hour and costs $33/person and takes you on a journey of Kansas City you may not have ever known about. This is a walking tour so make sure you pack some comfy shoes and learn about the deep dark secrets of those those lost souls in KC.
Gateway Ghouls and Hauntings
Okay, I have to admit this sounds pretty interesting. This St. Louis tour takes you to some of the hot spots of ghosts and haunting in the Lou. St, Louis was built on what used to be a burial ground many moons ago. This tour explains who (or what) is buried underneath the city of St. Louis.
Lemp Haunted Neighborhood
So we all know about the Lemp Mansion and all of its haunting, but did you know the whole neighborhood is haunted? This is so cool. The walking tour takes you on a paranormal investigation and tells you not only about the cursed Lemp Family, but the mystery behind the whole neighborhood. Count me in. I would love to do this, and the best part it's in a group setting so you won't get too freaked out. Maybe.
Haunted Hannibal Ghost Tours
Now I've done this and it's a blast. You wouldn't think Hannibal is THAT haunted, think again. You learn so much about the dark past of Hannibal and if you have a hard time believing in ghosts well I dare you to take this tour and see what you think after it's over. I have a funny feeling you will change your mind.
Night Ghost Tour of Pythian Castle
I have saved the best for last. Pythian Castle is located in Springfield, Missouri, and is known to be one of the most haunted places in the Show-Me State. The tour is 90 minutes and takes you to spots where ghosts have been seen regularly like the ballroom and basement (yeah not sure about that whole basement thing). Tour guides say this is a family-friendly tour I better hope Casper the Friendly Ghost is there.
