Spook-tacular Burlington - Take a Hike!

Got an hour to kill in Burlington?   "Queen City Ghost Walk" offers four separate guided tours from which you can choose.  I have yet to take these tours but tripadvisor gives approximately 25 impressive reviews.  I would suggest, especially during the month of October to call ahead to reserve tickets.  Advance tickets are $14 available through the Flynn; or pay $18 and take your chances to get in at the "door".  (Walk-ups admitted as space will allow). 


Queen City Ghost Walk also gives private tours or speaking engagements and you can book a party with them by contacting 802.351.1313 or email mail@queencityghostwalk.com 

All tours walk rain or shine....
