BOO! There are so many spooky things to do in Denver for Halloween. And one of the most fun is taking a ghost tour with friends and family! (Who knew Denver had so many haunts?) I took my first ghost tour in more than a decade and caught something on camera I never thought I would!
First, the Twilight Ghost Tour was monstrously fun — so much humor, history and hauntings!
Our tour guide Brandon was charismatic, personal and extremely knowledgeable. The tour was about a two-mile jaunt (1.7 miles, to be exact) and lasted two hours. It was a truly perfect fall evening adventure. A little creepy, a little humor and lots of ghost-inspired chills, all under the coolness of a Denver fall night.
The tour takes place around the Capitol Hill neighborhood, including what was once known as “Millionaires Row”, Poets Row, the Molly Brown House Museum and more.
While the tour does not include actually entering any of the buildings, our tour group had a special experience. The owner of the Capitol Hill Mansion Bed and Breakfast Inn was sitting outside on the porch during our tour and graciously let us go in for a few minutes. It made for an extra spooky experience!
And one of our final stops was at the “most haunted place in Denver” — the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion. I will let you take the tour yourself for the full backstory. However, I snapped the photo below at the last minute and look at what I captured! (Do you see what I see?)
You can experience the tour yourself with a discount on tickets!
Regular ticket prices are $26 for adults (ages 13 to 64), $22 for children (ages 6 to 12) and $24 for seniors (65 and older.)
