Due to a high volume of requests, we have decided to add a page for people who are looking for "Ghost Tours" in the D.C. and surrounding areas. DCMAG cannot guarantee that any of these tours have legitimate hauntings as we have not investigated many of these sites. We do however like to "let our hair down" every once in a while and just enjoy a good ghost story. "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" (DCMAG Staff)


The walking "Ghost Tour" created by Shirley Dougherty over 30 years ago is full of great stories and fun. This is by far one of the best ghost tours I have been on and is fairly cheap in price. I highly recommend it. For more information, please visit their website listed above.   

Recommendations : Try to arrive prior to sundown to enjoy the beautiful West Virginia scenery and maybe a bite to eat.


This great ghost tour located near downtown D.C. is fun for the whole family, but remember there are 3 different ghost tour routes to choose from on this tour. Please visit their website listed above.

Recommendations: try to arrive a little early as traffic and parking can and parking can sometimes be a problem.


Another great ghost tour to attend is in Ellicott City, Md and is considered by many Marylanders to be one of the most haunted towns in the state. It has now added an extra tour to it's schedule due to it's popularity. To schedule a tour and further info, please visit their website listed above.

Recommendations: There are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance, so make sure you go hungry. There are also plenty of antique shops for those who are interested.
