10,000 Dead

Their Spirits are still haunting the Strand!

THE STRAND in Galveston has seen a horrifying number of sudden deaths.  An ungodly number of the islands dearly departed…well never departed.  Their spirits are lurking in the shadows, alleys, staircases and stalk THE STRAND every day!  The historic 19th century buildings on THE STRAND have become ghost sanctuaries. And the ghosts inside are just dying to meet you.


Join us on our ninety minute walking tour as we explore the gory, spooky and fascinating paranormal happenings on the strand...the original street of horror. Hurricanes, war, fire, and epidemics of diseases!  The notorious pirate Jean Lafitte even turned the island into a den of thieves. Galveston has more ghosts than any other city in America.


Walking in the night into history, translucent figures will float by the windows that bore witness to tragedy after tragedy. Shadows will suddenly appear and objects move of their own accord as we huddle closer to one another for are mutual protection. We never know what’s waiting for us around the corners. Beware and be scared! After all Galveston is nothing but “a cemetery with a beach attached.”
