Haunted Detroit: The Dark Side of History Tour.


Haunted Detroit: The Dark Side of History Tour.

from 58.00

From the days of French settlers and the ghouls who tormented them, to the grim realities of early factories and their gruesome death tolls; Detroit is a town with a devilishly scary past. Its citizens have long straddled the line between good and evil, and more than a few rules have been broken over the years. As Halloween approaches we can all spare a nervous glance towards Detroit's darker side. It’s never wise to travel alone through the storied corridors of history, so we willingly offer ourselves as your guides on this macabre journey through the Motor City’s darkest historical moments.

From escape artist, and illusionist Harry Houdini’s plunge into the Detroit River to the bravery of escaped slaves crossing into the freedom of Canada. From the strange going ons of a private men’s club at night to the unlucky bar maid who was discovered mid-extramarital tryst. Mobsters, teamsters, ghosts, social injustices, cemeteries, murder, pranks, devil's night, assassinations, hauntings, outbreaks of cholera, unexplained disappearances, wars, tricks and treats await you on the all new: Haunted Detroit: The Dark Side of History Tour.

It is our great and terrified pleasure to offer refreshment stops during this tour. At one stop you’ll be treated to a light snack and a alcoholic beverage inclusive of your ticket price. At all additional stops purchases are at the guests expense and cash is preferred to quicken bar service. Drinking alcohol is not allowed on the bus. Coolers, flasks, and bottles of blood, will NOT be permitted. Bottled water is provided to all guests complimentary.

Please, eat before boarding the tour as none of the stops offer substantial food options during our limited stay.

Parking is free and secure in the two public lots across the street from the bar. Look for the “Detroit history tours” signs.

The owners, retired city police officers, Randy and Michelle, are thrilled to share the story of Lulu, their resident ghost. Along with offering pre and post tour drink specials for our guests. Randy is also taking the opportunity to try a few of his special recipes out. He’s proud to say “The Coolidge Inn is a bar, not a restaurant. But, we offer a hell of a meal special.” Each night he’ll be serving up his famous chili and one $10 special. They aren’t vegetarian. They can not accommodate dietary needs. But, if you’d like to come early (or stay late ) for a tour they are happy to sell you a good meal at a very fair price.
