Austin: Haunted Pub Crawl Walking Tour

1. Austin: Haunted Pub Crawl Walking Tour

In Austin’s Haunted Pub Crawl, take a deep dive into the city during the Old West days. Stop over in a few bars to look at some of the weird and unusual history, and death that the city has dealt with. Learn from your guide about Driskill Hotel, one of Austin’s finest and oldest hotels that probably houses more ghosts in it than guests, and about how the city’s locations all have stories of a troubled past.  Each location and each spirit has a story that they want to tell, a story that can be found on every street corner and every brick, each one uniquely different from the last. Learn the stories of Austin one drink at a time.

Austin Ghosts

2. Austin Ghosts

On this ghost tour you will visit haunted locations such as The Omni Hotel, the William Sidney Porter House, and the Museum of the Weird, among countless oddball restaurants and vintage shops.  Austin has a unique way of encouraging eccentric behavior with its infamous element of the weird. The history of the capital of Texas offers shocking stories of forbidden lovers, heartbreaking suicides, brutal murders, and freak accidents.  Some of the ghosts you may encounter on this historic ghost tour are playful and harmless, but others are quite wicked and have committed some horrific crimes in their lifetimes. Stroll through hotspots in the "City of Bats" on this ghost tour and explore the dark side of the city's charming downtown streets. You’ll not only visit the most haunted places in town, but also discover the history that lives on in each building.  Keep your cameras ready because some pretty spooky footage has been captured on some of these expeditions. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the suicide brides roaming around the Driskill, or witness the legendary "Man with the Cigar" who thoughtfully paces around the Paramount Theatre.  Loads of tall tales will skim the surface of Austin’s history, but you will also hear true stories that have been thoroughly fact-checked and researched.
