Ghost Tours to Take This Fall Near Litchfield Beach

The things you learn on a ghost tour … your brain archives them, you know.

That’s what makes ghost stories so compelling. Terrifying tales — or even spooky accounts — give us a rush of adrenaline. It’s especially fun when we’re in the setting in which the stories take shape.

That’s just one of the cool things about a fall trip to Litchfield.

Fast Facts About Ghost Tours

Research shows a strange fascination we have with the supernatural. Here are some cool byproducts of that.

  1. They’re a fun way to learn history. You’ll learn about a favorite vacation destination even if you’re skeptical. A ghost tour is more entertaining than a history tour.
  2. You have choices. Take a guided tour or a self-guided one. Often, they’re at little or no cost.
  3.  They’re especially spooky in the fall. A scary story is scary any time, but in the summer heat, it’s less impactful. Give me a fall chill and some fog.
