These are scary times.
So why not lean into the dread and have a little fun with it? While other people are watching fireworks on Zoom, you could be out social-distance ghost hunting.
That’s right, this weekend there are two chances to show your paranormal patriotism with two investigations led by Haunted Rooms America. Friday night, head out to White Rock Lake and look for the Lady of the Lake, one of Dallas’ most famous ghosts. The tour includes use of ghost-hunting equipment, various ghost legends of the area (including a stop at the also-haunted Flag Pole Hill), and complimentary soft drinks and snacks during the evening.
Or head up to Denton on Saturday the 4th for the Goatman’s Bridge Ghost Hunt. That bridge is reportedly home to a few different spirits, as well, including a goat farmer lynched by the KKK. So fair warning that this particular tour deals with some particularly sensitive issues and may not be for everyone—unless those KKK assholes got what they deserved, but that’s probably not the case.
Throughout the summer, you can travel all over Texas for additional spooky opportunities including overnight ghost hunts at abandoned sanatoriums and hospitals, several haunted hotels and inns, an opera house and a county jail.
All Haunted Rooms America ghost tours follow strict social distancing guidelines, but we definitely recommend contacting them before any tour if you have questions about exactly what they’re doing to keep everyone safe.
Because we’re far more afraid of droplets these days than any ghostly apparition.
