Old Town Alexandria played an integral role in the formation of this country. As such a historical area, it makes sense that it would have its fair share of ghosts—both figurative and (possibly) literal. Alexandria Colonial Tours leads ghost tours and historical tours of Old Town throughout the year.
For the Ghost & Graveyard Tour, your guide will get dressed up in 18th-century garb to add to the authenticity of the tour. They’ll relay age-old ghost stories and folklore about Alexandria as you stroll through the streets and see firsthand the locations in these tall tales. You can also opt to skip the folklore and dive into substantiated history instead. The tour guides offer two options: Alexandria History or African American History. Each tour focuses on a different aspect of the backstory that made your city what it is today.
