Presented by Old Town Trolley Tours.
“Join us for a spirited & entertaining tour built on stories of history, mystery and legends of San Diego’s past & DARKER SIDE!” Dying to Take a Ride on the Dark Side? Travel back in time with us and learn of the spirits of the notorious wild characters like Gunslingers, Gamblers and Ladies of the Night who lived and died in San Diego. It is possible that their spirits live on in the dark recesses of our historic buildings and neighborhoods.
Pioneer Park is perfect for picnics and for school children to play; indeed, it is a lovely place during the day. Located next to Grant School, hear stories of how the park changes to the darker side when the sun goes down and there is a different feeling in the air. Journey through Old Town, walking through El Campo Santo Cemetery and ending at the Whaley House*, both sites of many reported paranormal occurrences.
According to the Travel Channel’s America’s Most Haunted, the Whaley House is the most haunted house in the United Sates. Although we cannot state positively that the House is really haunted, the voluminous documentation of paranormal occurrences at the site makes a compelling case. But, if there are ghosts at the Whaley House, who are they and why are they here?
