Looking for a real haunted treat this October? Head to Barnstable Cape Cod MA where the ghosts and goblins like to come out to play around Halloween.
Haunted Cape Cod tours will guide you around Old Kings Highway, which is possibly the most exciting (and creepiest) places to be in all of Cape Cod.
Ghost Stories And More
If you love ghostly legend and haunted stories, spend a night roaming this ghoulish town. You may get lucky and see a ghost – one of the more memorable things to see in Cape Cod for sure!
Five nights a week (closed Fridays and Mondays) from mid April through the middle of November, the Old Kings Highway Historic District in Barnstable Village becomes the site of a fascinating, and possibly terrifying, treat: the Barnstable Villlage Haunted & History Walking Tour.
The tour begins at Sturgis Library, once the home of Barnstable founder John Lothrop. It is said that the old Lothrop ghost still spends his nights walking amongst the shelves of books.
From the Library the tour continues, offering both historic information about the local sites as well as the Cape Cod ghost stories that have followed.
Cape Cod Ghost Stories
Tourists will walk to places like Cobb’s Hill Cemetery, the site of many unusual and unexplainable phenomenon.
Then they’ll visit the 1690 Old Jail where a ghostly caretaker is said to still keep an eye on the place… and those who visit.
And finally, as the night sets in, the tour wraps up at the Cape’s most haunted site “The House of Eleven Ghosts”.
In all, the tour includes ten stops and takes about two hours – so be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes. And, don’t forget the camera because you never know who – or what – you might see.
Cape Cod Vacations
Haunted Cape Cod ghost tours are just one of the many traditions locals and visitors hold so dear around Halloween. There is just something magical about the brisk autumn air, the falling leaves, and the foliage. It’s something that – quite frankly – you really have to see and feel to believe.
Reserve one of the many Cape Cod Hotel Packages this fall. You won’t be scared by the prices. Leave that to the ghosts of Cape Cod.
