It’s getting spooky around here… Princeton Tour Company is kicking off its 2018 Ghost Tour Season this Saturday! Part creepy and part historical–get a who’s who of some of the most legendary occupants on a flashlight walk through the Princeton Cemetery–the tour guides tell true stories from the town, and teach guests how to use ghost hunting tools to ‘connect with the other side.’ Tours are three times each night, every Friday & Saturday this season starting with this Saturday: https://princetontourcompany.com/activities/halloween-cemetery-visits-ghost-hunts/
