Appalachian GhostWalks' Fall Season SPOOK-tacular

October 20, 2010

The fall 2010 tour season has begun and Appalachian GhostWalks' Ghost and History Tours is celebrating it's 5th Year Anniversary offering local residents of our region, as well as area travelers, the chance to experience a real lantern-lit walking tour packed with "spine-tingling" stories of real history and real ghosts!

Now known as one of the top four ghost tour companies in America, Appalachian GhostWalks offers family appropriate tours great for ages five and up. Everyone is invited to bring the whole family, or tour group on a historic adventure and walk back in time for a visit with the "People of the Past".

Each historically accurate tour offers a small piece of a much larger puzzle of East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia history as your guide weaves a chilly tale of our region's vast cultural heritage coupled with true, spine-tingling ghost stories. Catering to groups as few as two people, one simple phone call will help you create a memorable fall evening out in one of our area's first western frontier towns.

Twelve different ghost and history tours located here in the heart of the Northeastern Tennessee and Southwest Virginia Mountains include Historic Dandridge, Erwin and Unicoi County Heritage Museum, the East Tennessee State University Campus, Tipton-Haynes State Historic Site, Greeneville, Rogersville, Blountville, downtown Johnson City's "Little Chicago GhostWalk" and Jonesborough — once listed on the Travel Channel as one of the top ten most haunted towns in America! Our Virginia haunted historic tours presently include the historic districts of BRISTOL, also known as the "Birthplace of Country Music" and Abingdon — the "Gate to America's First Western Frontier".

Several bus tours are currently under production for a 2011 inauguration and all tours operate year-round, nightly by advance reservation. Simply call
(423) 743-WALK (9255) with the number in your party, the tour location of your choice, and the date you and your party would like to tour. Also, everyone is invited to visit the award winning tour website at www.AppalachianGhostWalks.com for additional information.

Ten percent of the company's annual profits go to benefit Saint Jude's Children's Research Hospital so make Appalachian GhostWalks a "must do" for your family this Fall while supporting a great cause as you enjoy the thrills, chills, mystery, history, legend and true ghost stories of the Southern Appalachian Mountains!
