The tour starts off at the beloved Garrett's popcorn. Guests will receive a treat bag of "Garrett's Mix" before taking a spooky stroll through downtown Chicago narrated by one of the expert guides. Chicago has a very storied past and is known to be one of the most Haunted cities in America. The fact that Lincoln Park and much of the land along the lakefront sits on a graveyard with bodies still being discovered to this day may explain some of the hauntings. Or maybe it has more to do with Chicago's love affair with gangsters, guns, crime and murder. For October and November only, there are additional days and times available (see full event listing for details). [less-]
