In honor of Halloween, I'm sharing the creepiest and final part of our Boston Trip, the Boston Ghosts and Gravestones tour!
Boston Ghosts and Gravestones tour is two hour trip to several Boston graveyards after dark.
They drive guests around in a spooky trolley and then open up the locked graveyards to let everyone walk around while telling tales of the graveyards and people buried there.
Our "doom buggy" (aka evil trolley)
All of the guides dress up in costume and are in character, even the driver of the trolley.
We were scared!
Just kidding, I ain't afraid of no ghost.
These old graveyards at night really look like a movie set.
They told us all kinds of stories of the shipwrecks, serial killers, ghosts, gravediggers, and legends of Boston.
They also shared that the largest graveyard in Boston is actually the Boston Common (the big park in the middle of Boston). However, it is an unmarked graveyard. Apparently, back in the early days of Boston it was used to hang people that were convicted of crimes. But it was too much trouble to bury criminals, so they just would give them shallow grave in the Boston Common . Creepy, right?
Our lovely tour guide decided to demonstrate on the Mr. of what a hanging in the Boston Common looked like.
I'm pretty sure this should be our Christmas Card this year. No?
The funniest part was when our tour guide pretended to lock our tour group in one of the graveyard and ran off. We stood there for minute feeling confused and suddenly an another guide popped out from behind a grave!
It was such an interesting, fun, and unique tour!
But just remember...
When the sun goes down in Boston...
The spooks come out at night!
(This is actually the view from my Mom's apartment. Pretty amazing, huh?)
