Ghost World

Even on good days, downtown Mesa can resemble a ghost town, so where better for a walking tour of historic haunts this Halloween season?

Don your comfiest sneakers and join tour guides for the two-hour Mesa Ghost Tour & Historical Walk, a sinister stroll of troubling tales and haunts on the hoof. Wander Sun Dust Gallery’s sunken halls, brave the revenants still roaming the old jail, or succumb to your direst imaginings as you drift through centenarian landscapes of exposed brick and tin ceilings. The architectural history alone merits the ticket.

Yes, prepare for paranormal perambulations.
