Boos and Brews: The Haunted History of Columbus Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Columbus, Columbus, Ohio

    What might make a city haunted?

    While Columbus has a rich and vibrant history, there is also a dark side to our past. In this 2.5-hour*, walking tour, we’ll visit a number of fantastic locations through the Short North, Arena District, and Downtown. Each location has its own tale and experience. From a cold winter murder to a hot prison fire to secret tunnels under the city, Columbus is full of haunted tales.

    This tour gives you a chance to learn and experience these stories over a drink during our several stops.

    This is not a ghost hunting tour, but is a chance to explore Columbus’ haunted past. We’ll have a great time walking and sharing stories. Join me on one of the listed dates or contact me for a customized, private tour.

    Join me…if you dare!

    We had such a great time learning about Columbus’ history. There was so much I didn’t know! It’s great to see my city in a different light and get to hear spooky stories about potentially haunted places in the city. I would consider this a history tour, as it happens during bar

    Katy is a blast on this tour! High energy, informative, affordable, and most importantly funny! I wish the tour could go on all night! This is a must-do for the Halloween season. Get you friends and go.... NOW!

    I've never done a walking tour, in fact, when I planned my trip to Columbus, I was hoping to find a tour bus or van or something, but I saw all of Will's fantastic reviews and thought I'd contact him... My boyfriend and I had a wonderful Columbus experience, thanks in large
