It’s never too early to start getting pumped for Halloween — and if someone tells you it is, then you know who the first person you’re going to want to spook is. The deep south has no shortage of creepily cool places full of history and adventure, and one company seems to totally get the obsession. If you're looking for haunted places in Alabama to explore, this tour company in Birmingham will take you all around the aged city to some of its most historic and gruesome sites.\nThe Birmingham Historic Touring Company (BHTC) has a penchant for all things strange, dark, and unusual, and they offer curious explorers the chance to take part in both their driving and walking tours.\nTheir main tour will take you on a two-hour walk back through Birmingham’s dark history to the sites of riots, murders, and haunting historic events.\nIf you’d prefer to explore in style, you can check out their Ghost and Graveyards Driving Tour, where you’ll find a seat on the Grand Caravan and check out the city’s only Antebellum mansion, hidden graveyards, as well as historic theatres and hotels that all claim their own fair share of hauntings.\nAlong with cemeteries and churches, BHTC also takes you through the chilling rusted tunnels of Sloss Furnace, where many a ghost hunter has said to have seen apparitions and heard bits of the past that are still alive within its pipes.\nView this post on Instagram Happy Halloween!

You can even book a tour that explores the Civil Rights Experience, covering topics that may be considered harsh such as marches, bombings, and social constructs.\nView this post on Instagram Zay's favorite on our Birmingham trip? The Birmingham Ghost Walk! A late night tour of downtown Birmingham churches and hotels. Not cheesy, just cool. And a great way to learn pretty cool history of Birmingham. Big surprise on this tour for us though: Our Hotel was the first stop! We didn't know it was supposed to be haunted 👻👀 #birminghamghostwalk #birmingham #birminghamalabama #alabama #visitalabama #roadtrip #travelusa #travelgram #travelblogger #travelwithkids #momswhotravel #traveligwithkids #travelingmom #roadtrip #ghosttour A post shared by Mother Roads (@mother.roads) on Jun 27, 2018 at 10:54am PDT\nWalking tours typically last 1 to 2 hours depending on the specific sites you’re visiting, and you can book them for $25 a person.\nView this post on Instagram A magnificent dead tree at Mcelwain Baptist church cemetery A post shared by Edward Wolfgang Poe (@bhamhistory) on Nov 2, 2018 at 8:23am PDT\nGhost stories are fun alone, but they’re always better when you can experience them in person!
