Nightmares Around Elm Street Tour

Several months ago, I picked up a Groupon for Carolina History and Haunts tour of downtown Greensboro. I finally had a date that worked to attend the tour with a friend, and made an evening of it downtown last night, Friday, April 5.

We started with drinks and appetizers at MCoul's before walking over to the tour near the Melvin Municipal Building. The tour started around 8pm, and there were about 25-30 people. I know the company limits the number of guests per tour to ensure quality, so if you decide to take the tour, be sure to make a reservation!

We learned so much about the history of Greensboro - the tour first visited Blandwood Mansion and learned about the history and possible haunts associated with the building. We walked over and learned about historical graveyards and cemeteries that either were or still are in downtown Greensboro. We learned about stories both from decades ago and more recently (in the past year, even) that would made my skin crawl. Without giving too much away, let's just say the tour is totally worth your time and money, especially if you are interested in the paranormal, but even if you are a paranormal skeptic. We learned about the building where MCoul's is, the Carolina Theatre, and some of the shops on Elm Street.

Dressed in tails and a top hat, carrying a candle lantern, Dan the Tour Guide did a great job of interacting with the people on the tour, providing historical information, and giving background on why certain places are said to be haunted. It may seem weird to take a tour of the city where you live, but it was a good time and a great evening out. I highly recommend it!
