A city that has as much history as Asheville is sure to have a few mysteries, and exploring the unknown can sometimes lead down strange and even spooky paths. But do not fear! All of Asheville's haunted and mysterious adventures are fully guided.
Phantoms by Foot
Two of Asheville's ghost tours offer family-friendly walking routes in downtown, plus historic neighborhoods like Montford and Biltmore Village and legendary Riverside Cemetery. The Ghost Hunters of Asheville tour offers guests access to ghost-hunting equipment and guarantees paranormal photos for your scrapbook.

Mysteries on the Move
Gray Line of Asheville's Haunted History & Murder Mystery Tour offers more than an hour of ghoulish delights across Asheville, all from the comfort (or protection?) of their iconic red trolleys.
Or for a more intimate experience, hop aboard Lenore, the haunted 1970s-ers hearse that is the spooky centerpiece of the new Dark Ride Tours. None other that Charon himself chauffeurs these tours around Riverside Cemetery and the French Broad River. And lookout--Lenore is known to turn up at Asheville's pubs for special, impromptu rides.
For a look at Asheville after dark as you've never seen it before, climb on the odd purple bus and join hosts like Thomas Wolfeman, Hellena Handbasket and Ghoulish Gary for a hilarious and hair-raising LaZoom Haunted Comedy Tour. This show is 17+ only, so please leave the kids at home.
Most of Asheville's haunted excursions run year-round, but as Halloween draws near, some other Asheville attractions get in on the fun, too. For non-scary, family-friendly celebrations, check our calendar for special events at the WNC Nature Center, Grandfather Mountain and Chimney Rock Park, among others.
