San Francisco Vampire Walking Tour

OK, this was a fun way to see San Francisco after dark. The “mostly” true stories on the undead in San Francisco’s history make the rest of the stay more enjoyable, especially since we stayed in the nearby “haunted” Mark Hopkins Hotel.

Along with the Mark Hopkins we spent two hours visiting Grace Cathedral, Nob Hill Cafe, Huntington Park, Pacific-Union Club and the Fairmont Hotel.

It can get pretty cool at night in San Francisco, so bundle up against the chills – real and imagined.

EIGHT HAUNTED HOUSES

Nevermore: The Madness of Poe
The madness of Edgar Allen Poe’s greatest works has come to life.  Step into the mind of the iconic writer, where every turn of the page takes you closer to the brink of insanity.

The Forsaken
Four ships began Columbus’s fateful voyage, only three became legend. Condemned to a watery grave, the mutinous and cursed crew of that 4th ship has returned with a vengeance.  For within the walls of a Spanish fort, a maelstrom has brought from the depths….death itself.

H.R. Bloodengutz Presents: Holidays of Horror
Join creature feature host, H.R. Bloodengutz, in his final televised broadcast as he presents a SCARE-athon of holiday-based horror that is guaranteed to cleave you screaming for more.

The Thing
Paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers in an isolated Antarctic outpost as they are infected, one by one, by a horrifying creature from another planet. In a place where there is nothing, they found something.

Saws N’ Steam: Into the Machine
Spinning blades and massive, crushing pistons await you around every corner as you are forced deeper into the bowels of a mechanical nightmare.  Give yourself to “The Machine.”

The In-Between
An ominous portal reveals a 3rd dimension where all is not what it seems: a realm where our world and another collide.  Surrounded by fiendish creatures, your eyes will deceive you with every step through this phantasm of terror.

Winter’s Night: The Haunting of Hawthorn Cemetery
As snow falls on this normally serene gothic cemetery, the deceased souls that occupy its confines have their sights set upon you, insuring that the chill you feel up your spine is more than just the cold of night.

Nightingales: Blood Prey
Within every war, the Nightingales have appeared.  Able to transform themselves to fit any setting, these savage banshees feed on the weak and the helpless.  Patrolling WWI era trenches, you discover that you are more than just at war…you’re being hunted.

SIX SCAREZONES

Acid Assault
For decades now the city has been degrading from the effects of Acid Rain that still falls today, caused by factories which sprung up on the city’s edges during the 20th century.  Those that have lived and survived the blistering decay are all alone in the city. Survivors have stripped the city of all life to sustain their own…dare to enter the ACID ASSAULT.

Canyon of Dark Souls
Upon entering into the Canyon of Dark Souls, you will feel like a small spec of humanity as the overwhelming sense of death surrounds you. Creatures that dwell within the Canyon are not welcoming so walk slowly as to not disturb them.

Grown Evil
Enter, if you dare, into our garden where Evil grows. Nature has taken this once well manicured sanctuary back from the humans who once kept it.  Now the creatures that inhabit the garden are making any human that enters their prey.

NightMaze
Journey through the ever changing maze of darkness.  This all black maze will morph and change as you walk through it. You will not be scared the same way twice.

7
As daylight shines upon our Temptresses, their appearance, though evil, allows you the spectacle of beauty.  As night falls, these 7 temptresses will show their true colors and take on their true Fatal Evil forms. Beware of your own temptations.

Your Luck Has Run Out
Enter if you dare into the lair of the LUCKY!  Your choices will determine if you make it out alive. Witness lucks deadly wrath, will she choose you to be her next victim?

Two most haunted hotels in San Diego

view of hotel del coronado

Hotel del Coronado

One of the largest wooden buildings in the United States, the Hotel del Coronado (The Del) was built in 1888.

Before 1900,  two tragic women had separately committed suicide, each taking with them the life of an unborn child. Their ghosts remain in two rooms.

The ghosts of a little boy and girl have also been reported, as well as a hotel caretaker walking the dining room and a Victorian lady gliding across a dance floor.

Horton Grand Hotel

 

Two Victorian hotels, the Grand and the Kale Saddlery were lovingly reconstructed onthe former site of Ida Bailey’s  “cat house” in the heart of the Gaslamp’s historic red light district.

At the time, a favorite haunt of Wyatt Earp, the hotel is now the haunting grounds of the ghost of a mid-1800’s gambler by the name of Roger A. Whittaker.

Star of India – San Diego Ghost Ship

San Diego’s Star of India sailing ship is one of the oldest iron-hull sailing ships still afloat . A dedicated crew of volunteers take care of the ship and even sail it out into San Diego Bay and beyond to the Pacific Ocean off the California coast.

Built in 1863, this ship has been in nearly every seaport in the world. Many, many sailors served on her, but not all walked off under their own power. More than a few died on the Star of India, their bodies sent to the bottom of the ocean. Some poor souls however were killed so suddenly and so violently that their spirits still haunt the ship.

See more photos of the ship and learn more about the spirits that never left the Star of India.

Explore an interactive map to the Maritime Museum Association of San Diego, keepers of the Star of India, and see where the closest hotel is located.

There are many more things to see and do along San Diego Bay.

Rome crypts and catacombs

Capuchin Bone Chapel

Capuchin Bone Chapel

When in Rome, do as the Romans? Touring the city’s subterranean burial chambers is something often done by locals, but is almost unheard of with tourists.  So be the first one on your block to have gone “catacombing”.

The Capuchin Crypt chapel walls are completely covered on the inside with human bones. It is only creepy if you stop to think what you are seeing – and standing next to!

Some of the catacombs like the Domitilla Catacombs no longer have bodies on display to the public, but you can sure get the feeling what it must have been like. Bodies were not so much buried here as they were set into shallow holes in the walls, far underground, in the dark. Thank goodness for electric lights. (no cameras though, in any of these places.)

There is a 3-hour tour that starts daily around 2:30 from the Piazza Barberini. – Map – This one is close to a metro stop.
Read what others have said about the tours.
Get more information and reserve tickets before you go. These tours sell out early.

Here is are some pretty good,  reasonably priced, nearby hotels.
