1. Outer Banks Ghost Tours
With as much history as the Outer Banks has lying behind every corner, thereâ??s no doubt that there are also a fair share of ghosts lurking in the shadows, as well.

A family-friendly tour that takes approximately 90 minutes is a sure bet to bring chills up your spine while enjoying an easy-going evening walk through the beautiful, yet haunted, town of Manteo.
2. Evening Lantern Tours â?? Victorian Death Rituals
Walk the grounds of Island Farm, one of the oldest homesteads on the Outer Banks, on the nights of October 31st and November 1st to experience first-hand what it was like to go through the grieving process more than 200 years ago on that very same location. Historically authentic and guaranteed spooky, this tour lasts about 20 minutes and is led by a full-costumed cast. For more information, click: here.
