BOSTON, Massachusetts

ATTRACTIONS

It is our intention to keep you very busy with official events, but we understand that part of our culture is the desire to strike out and explore the darkness of a new haunt on one's own. Here is a list of suggestions of where to start:

  • Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum: If you'd like to take in some culture, the Gardner Museum is an especially charming and unique repository of fine art.

  • Harvard Museum of Natural History: This features an exquisite glass flower exhibit, for those who love offbeat beauty.

  • Warren Anatomical Museum: Home to a vast collection of anatomical & pathological specimens.

  • Boston Athenæum: The Athenæum is one of the oldest independent libraries in the United States. It houses highwayman James Allen's memoir, bound in his own skin. We believe a private tour must be scheduled to view this item - contact us if you want to organize it as an official outing!

  • Boston Lights: Take a harbor cruise that includes the first lighthouse in America, said to be haunted.

  • Museum of Science: A bastion of rationality in a world of madness - its exhibits are also wonderful for kids.

  • Boston Commons and Boston Gardens: Swan boat rides highly recommended!

  • Ghost and Gravestones Tour and Haunted Boston are two of the many haunted tours this antiquarian city has to offer!

  • Bell & Bones Tour: King's Chapel in downtown Boston offers a tour of their 18th century crypt and bell tower. Learn about burial practices and see the 1816 Revere bell.

  • Edward Gorey House: The Gorey House is located in Yarmouth Port, about an hour and half drive from Boston on the Cape.

  • Salem: Take a trip through witch trial history and modern mysticism up in Salem, a 45-minute drive to the north!

  • Providence: We are also an hour north of Providence, where H.P. Lovecraft's house, grave, and other haunts are located, if you'd like an alternative day trip!

Of course, Boston is a perennial tourist destination:
