San Diego, the birthplace of California, is the ultimate vacation destination. However, beyond the beautiful, white sandy beaches that line the turquoise waters of the Pacific are some of the most haunted hot spots in the western United States.
San Diego, the birthplace of California, is the ultimate vacation destination. However, beyond the beautiful, white sandy beaches that line the turquoise waters of the Pacific are some of the most haunted hot spots in the western United States. Waiting to greet you beyond this international port are haunted sea vessels, hotels, restaurants, aircraft carriers, lighthouses, and even what the US Congress has designated as “The Most Haunted House in America.”
The Gaslamp Quarter, famous for its vibrant nightlife, houses some of the most historic buildings in the city. But its colorful past delivers a dark side once the neon lights go out. The eerie encounters are reminiscent of a true Wild West America and you might even catch a ghostly glimpse of Wyatt Earp himself! Whether you are looking to be haunted by ghosts or the spirits that may haunt you the next day, you’ve never explored San Diego like you will with a Nightly Spirits ghost tour.
What to Expect:
Your costumed guide will take you on a 2.5-hour journey through the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Your walking tour will begin at a haunted bar, where you can purchase a drink if you would like, and while you soak up the spirits that lurk behind the bar, your costumed guide will share stories about the spirits that refuse to depart! Your journey will take you up the famed 5th Avenue, with historic buildings and dark shadows at every corner. You will visit a total of 3-4 haunted bars* so there will be plenty of liquid courage available for purchase as you face the former residents of the Gaslamp.
*Nightly Spirits does not guarantee a certain number of bars or a specific route, but our guides are equipped with plenty of chilling ghost stories to ensure you have a fun evening.
The purchase of drinks is not included or required, so be prepared for some downtime at each bar if you choose not to drink.
All tour guests must be 21+.
This is a walking tour that covers up to a mile in total. There will be drink stops along the route where you will have the chance to sit down, but this tour is not recommended for those with mobility restrictions.
Tours run in all weather, so please prepare accordingly.
