Ghost tours have always been popular in certain cities year-round, such as New Orleans, Charleston, and Gettysburg, but a new breed of “ghost tour” is cropping up around the country with the popularity of paranormal investigation shows. Paranormal reality TV shows are huge right now, and this trend that has generated so much interest in ghost hunting and paranormal investigations hasn’t gone unnoticed by the ghost tour industry.
More and more ghost groups are stepping up their game to offer real paranormal investigations instead of just walking around spooky buildings at night telling stories of local history and ghostly legends. Here are a few paranormal events around the country that are turning the classic ghost tour into a whole new experience for potential paranormal investigators. With summer vacation season coming, you don’t need to wait for October or Halloween for a good scare.

Chasing Ghosts And The Paranormal In The Big Easy
New Orleans is primarily known for Mardi Gras, but also their eclectic mix of jazz, voodoo, and haunted sites. Ghost tours are a thriving business in this popular tourist destination, and among the many options available, Bloody Mary’s Tours go beyond the standard ghost walk to investigate some dark and deadly legends in one of America’s most haunted cities. With an amazing variety of tours and investigations, you should be able to find a paranormal investigation tour that suits your interests. Some options include visiting a private Victorian mansion that was featured on Ghost Adventures or visit another location featured in several TV shows. Although the property isn’t named on the site, it’s clearly the Rampart Street Murder House being referenced, most recently seen on Paranormal Lockdown.
The site invites you to “an intense paranormal investigation and perhaps even help [to] clear a dark chapter of New Orleans history in the process — Hurricane Katrina. Go to a location featured on History channel, TLC and 20/20.” The Rampart Street deaths occurred when a young couple’s lives ended tragically after the man murdered his girlfriend in the home and committed suicide. Part of her body was found in the oven and her head was found in a pot on the stove.
It doesn’t get much more authentic than that.
