Ghosts of Charlotte

How Elizabeth tied history and the ghost's stories together in a way that was fun and comprehensible.

A small group (only 8) so we could all be close to listen to Elizabeth. She did an excellent job & made the night enjoyable, informative & entertaining.

Informative - But Not Scary

If you're looking to hear about all the ghosts in Charlotte, this is a very informative Ghost Walk. There is a rich history of haunted places and spirits in this town.
The host is knowledgeable and entertaining and doesn't do the typical overacting and cheap scare tactics.
You walk away knowing some great stories to share with others.

I loved this tour!!! Laura was so knowledgeable about the history of the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone…
Karen_S, Nov 2021
The mining tunnels under the city. Of course, the hotel haunts. The house where the family lives with the bootleg ghost is also neat.
