Your Heart Will Race with Fright in Charlotte
Did you know that Charlotte has the most graveyards per capita in the country? If it's true that the dead still walk among us, it will be here.
Known as a city of contrasts, Charlotte's haunted history seems at odds with its modern vibe and focus on speed and business. Yet, a closer look at the Queen City will reveal shades of a ghostly past lying just beneath the royal veneer. Passionate stories of loss, conflict, and death make certain locations in Charlotte a magnet for the spirits that haunt their grounds, repeating their actions or trying in vain to finish whatever business they have left here.
"I really enjoyed this tour! Not only were the stories creepy and fun, but we also got great suggestions of other things to do here during our trip."
