Book a Myrtle Beach Ghost Tour This Fall

Myrtle Beach doesn’t monkey around when it comes to ghost stories. The area’s history extends back way before golf courses and calabash shrimp. It’s been home to an Air Force base and timber mills, plus pirates and members of the Waccamaw tribe. 


There’s plenty of haunting potential.


We’re talking about the next level. Here’s where to go in Myrtle Beach for a ghost tour.

What Is a Ghost Tour?

This isn’t just an exploration into the paranormal. Many tours are friendly to families and are an exploration of the history of a place. The haunted history. Bring an open mind and a willingness to soak in the tales!

The Adventure of a Myrtle Beach Ghost Tour

Is it reasonable to believe one area has such a rich legacy of hauntings? If you’re talking about the Grand Strand, definitely.

1. US Ghost Adventures

Discover the spirits of the Grand Strand in the heart of Myrtle Beach. Tour the haunted Peach’s Corner and The Bowery on the Boardwalk with US Ghost Adventures. You’ll learn about Barman Joe, Peaches Justice, and the Gray Man. Worth every penny!


TRY THIS: After your tour, hit The Bowery for music (and Peter Mac’s Buffalo Shrimp.) Or, try Classic Fried Pickles and a corn dog at Peaches Corner.

2. Miss Chris' Inlet Walking Tour

You’ve seen Miss Chris if you’ve been on the Marshwalk for dinner and a drink. She’s the lovely lady dressed as a pirate leading the area’s favorite walking tour. Chris knows her stuff and is a fantastic guide and storyteller. Miss Chris’ Inlet Walking Tour is an award-winning, woman-owned business. Your adventure begins the moment you cross the threshold into the Marsh Walk!


TRY THIS: For a great time after your tour, head up the road to Suck Bang Blow. This legendary biker bar features awesome music and bartenders.

3. Trip Shock Myrtle Beach Ghost Tour

The Trip Shock ghost tour might leave you wriggling in your bed afterward. Good luck falling asleep! Take this double-decker bus tour to learn about the haunted side of the Grand Strand. If you date, walk through a cemetery with your guide (or you can stay on the bus.) There are famous ghosts who’ve haunted the area for generations, and you’re about to meet them.


TRY THIS: Book ahead online, because this tour sells out. Also, spend some time before the tour at nearby Pavilion Park. There’s fun for all ages there.

4. Hopsewee Plantation Ghost Tour

Save some time on your getaway for a day trip to historic Georgetown. Author and storyteller Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger leads the Hopsewee Plantation Ghost Tour. She’s a local expert, and signs copies of her books before tours. She’s a Georgetown treasure! Join her before the tour for happy hour drinks and hors d’oeuvres by the river, and visit the gift shop.


TRY THIS: Reserve your spot online. For an excellent meal or cup of tea and scone, visit the River Oak Cottage Teahouse at the plantation. What a treat!

5. Myrtle Beach Area Ghosts, Pirates and Historic Families Trolley Tour

Want to get to the bottom of Grand Strand ghost stories? This climate-controlled trolly tour heads south to Murrells Inlet. Hear ghost and pirate tales onboard as you see the haunted landmarks. You’ll make a quick stop at Brookgreen Gardens for a walk, too. The tour begins and ends at a convenient spot in Myrtle Beach.


TRY THIS: The tour meets at the Grand 14 theater in Market Common. Before you go, stop for a snack and drink at Shine 1229, a locals’ favorite.
