There is no better time to take a ghost tour of San Diego’s haunted past. All Hallow’s Eve is just around the corner – a time when the veil between worlds is at its thinnest and spirits are feeling festive!

The Whaley House:  The Past and Presence and Ghost Hunting Tours

By now you have probably heard of the most haunted house in the United States and are thinking of checking it out. So here’s the deal. There are two Whaley House sanctioned ghost tours that allow inside access to the house: the Past and Presence Ghost Tour and the Ghost Hunting Tour with the San Diego Ghost Hunters. Both are awesome ways to see the house, hear the history and experience the hype for yourself.

So San Diego:  Tequila, Tacos and Tombstones Tour

It seems too good to be true that So San Diego has taken three of my favorite things in LIFE and put them into one amazing adventure, also known as the Tequila, Tacos and Tombstones Tour. Because they know the only way to improve on the already awesome ghost stories of Old Town is by keeping you plied with delicious food and cocktails.

Old Town Trolley Tours: Ghosts and Gravestones Frightseeing Tour

Star of India

Star of India: Haunting Tales Tour

During October, take a lantern-led Haunting Tales Tour aboard the world’s oldest active sailing ship, the Star of India at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. As you would suspect, there are quite a few eerie legends and ghosts haunting a ship that has been sailing the seas since 1863.

About Maren

San Diego raised and New York City educated, I trained as a classical singer before switching to tourism marketing. Now I love telling the world about San Diego's diverse offerings, from live music to live uni. As a friend recently told me, "tough job."

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

For me, a perfect day always involves something I haven't done before. And even though I grew up  in San Diego, there is SO much to do I can usually find a way to make any day ideal. Next on the list is paragliding at Torrey Pines. I also need to meet more people with boats. Anyone?

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

I am a sucker for street fairs, county fairs, music festivals and block parties. The weather is always nice, the food is always sinful and the people are always interesting. I've been to the San Diego County Fair 3 times already!!!

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Tacos. Why does this question not include tacos? Fish tacos, carne asada, carnitas, shrimp, lobster, chorizo, vegetarian- I don't care. Put it in a corn tortilla and give it to me. Or any creation by the fabulous Jason Knibb over at 9-10 Restaurant in La Jolla.

Latest music purchases for my iPod player are…

Confession: I don't buy! I Pandora. I love everything from Tuvan throat singing to Lady Gaga. But seriously, Mahler's 2nd Symphony. Listen to it. Then we can talk.

  1. This is a good list of popular haunted tours in San Diego. Speaking from experience, San Diego Paranormal Eye (S.D.P.E) is a group of paranormal investigators often seen in the distance of theses tours at places like the Presidio, and Mission Hills / Pioneer park. While taking one of the above mentioned tours, I strayed off the beaten path and that is how I met Matthew Barron founder of SDPE. They offer free tours of haunted locations (usually to other paranormal groups, but if asked they always oblige anyone interested). Apparently they have guest investigations as well, as I noticed several in his group wearing “Guest” security ID badges. So it might be a good idea to update this list above by adding
