Start with a tour of some of the Cleveland's oldest buildings and likely hiding places for supernatural beings. A five-hour long Ohio City and Beyond Ghost Tour will even take you into Franklin Castle, a real haunted house.
If you're more of a marine thrill seeker, drop some cash on the Burning River Ghost Tour.

Even if you don't spot any ghouls, you'll finish off the tour at a local brewery--so you can wash away any disappointment.
Although we've already confirmed that zombies are taking top billing over pirates this Halloween, we can still occasionally provide a little love to the pirate fans.

The Beaufort Ghost Walk, on North Carolina's east coast, takes ghost hunters through the historic downtown while sharing some haunted tales. Your pirate guides, dressed to the nines in the buccaneer regalia, let you in on the town's many secrets and legends. The town was founded in 1709, so you know there's a lot of good stuff to share.
Besides Blackbeard's crib, you'll do your best to navigate through the nearby 300-year-old cemetery--the final resting place for those without watery graves. Make sure you bring your camera, as many have captured the spirits on film. Reservations for the $15 tour are required--so plan ahead.
