What's included

  • Choose the family-friendly "Benny's Haunts" or adults-only "Vampires, Sex, Ghosts!" tour, regularly up to $54 for two, led by local history professor and historical expert Joe Wojie. As NJ.com explains, the tour stops at traditional spots like Washington Square and details the darker stories behind them, like the fact that around 2,000 soldiers were executed there in the 1700s. Choose one of the following tours:
  • "Benny's Haunts": Hear stories about founding fathers including Benjamin Franklin amidst spooky ghost stories while passing Carpenters' Hall, the former library of Congress, the first and second banks built in the U.S., the Merchant's Exchange and City Tavern
  • "Vampires, Sex, Ghosts!": Called "high-energy" by NJ.com, this adults-only tour begins with stories of the founding fathers at Independence Hall and the former library of Congress and continues to sites of gallows and former red light districts with stories of brothels and torture
  • "Benny's Haunts" is available Sundays in October starting at 11 a.m.; the adults-only tour departs daily at 5 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on select Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in October and November. Read more about both tours here; click on a tour to view the availability calendar.
