Charleston, S.C.
'Tis the season to be frightened. The Holy City becomes the haunted city with every step you take on the Lowcountry Ghost Walk. Hear about "The Ghost of the Whistling Doctor," "The Story of Sue Howard's Ghost" or maybe even "The Legend of the Gullah Boo Hag" as you weave through the graveyards and alleys of one the nation's oldest cities. The Original Charleston Walks. 581/2 Broad St. 1-800-729-3420. www.charlestonwalks.com.
