Haunted Vicksburg Ghost Tour
At the meeting location you’ll be greeted by your tour guide, Morgan. Once the entire group has assembled Morgan will share a bit about what to expect, where the walk will lead you, and, of course, start with a good ghost story.
You’ll stroll in the dark through the neighborhoods, up and down hills all the while Morgan plies you with stories of things that go bump in the night. All the stops are outside and it’s easy to maintain a social distance from the other guests and still hear the ghost stories.
What to Bring on a Haunted Vicksburg Ghost Tour
The tour takes you down sidewalks and across streets for up to a mile and a half. Comfy walking shoes are a must!Of course, ghosts can appear at any time and anywhere. A camera can help capture those spirits for a very memorable experience.
I always use the camera on my cell phone and it has worked well over the years. It’s very important to take images in sets of three.
It makes it easier to determine what might be something paranormal versus something natural. The most important thing is to bring your sense of adventure and an open mind.
Even if you don’t believe in the paranormal you might just find yourself believing after listening to Morgan’s stories of the dark side.
