    One of the greatest joys of the Autumn season is having an entire month to embrace all things spooky; October is for cider, changing leaves and getting closer to the "other side." 

     

    Philadelphia's historical past makes it the perfect place for the supernatural, and we have the haunted attractions to prove it! This list is for the haunts and the brave humans who love them; we've got your ultimate guide to haunted houses, late-night ghost tours, and spooky hayrides galore! 

     

    If you just so happen to see a ghost this Hallo-season, send us a picture on TwitterFacebook and Instagram @Phillyfunguide! 

     

    Happy Haunting!

    Ghost Tour of the Haunted USS Olympia 

     

    All aboard the haunted Olympia battleship for a unique ghost tour of the creepy nooks and crannies of this historic wartime relic! Hear haunting tales from the high seas, from murder and suicide to the grisly death of "Gunner" Johnson, the ship’s most famous ghost. Whispers of ghostly activity stretch all the way back to 1895 when the ship was first commissioned as the "Queen of the Pacific." Since then, reports of disappearing apparitions, ghostly voices, and otherworldly activity have haunted this ship, which is the last of its kind. Enjoy this spirited tour of the haunted and historic Olympia, docked along the Delaware River waterfront at Penn's Landing!
