Annual Ghost Tours coming to downtown starting October 13th

ghosttour55Make plans to take a haunted tour through downtown Beaufort beginning October 13th as ghostly spirits are expected to take over the streets and alleys while the Exchange Club hosts its super fun Annual Ghost Tours. In Beaufort’s spookiest event, costumed storytellers captivate tour participants with the ghostly happenings while traveling the moss-lined streets of downtown’s historic, and haunted, Point Neighborhood.

Tours last about an hour and will run in the evenings of October 13-14, 20-22, 27-30. You can make your reservation to take a carriage ride aboard one of Southurn Rose’s horse drawn buggies or a walking tour taking you through the eerie night while listening to haunting tales of the area by calling 843-52-GHOST (843.524.4678).

Some of Beaufort’s oldest residents have shared stories from their childhood and the Exchange Club of Beaufort brings these stories to life every October.

The oldest ghost in America is said to live in “the Castle,” a 19th century renovated estate located on the river in downtown Beaufort. Beware: ghostly visions have been known to appear on past tours.

Walking tour tickets are $12 for all ages and carriage tours are $12 for children ages 3-11 and $22 for adults.

Eat Sleep Play Beaufort is happy to sponsor this event for the 7th straight year. All proceeds benefit the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA) of Beaufort County.
