Are you a fan of ghost stories? If you are, there are plenty of ghost walks just outside of Mississauga. Ghost walks give you a chance to learn some haunting tales while also getting a little bit of a history lesson at the same time. Usually, the guides also dress up in old Victorian apparel and even carry a lantern to bring the spooky atmosphere to life. Here are the best ghost walks you can visit outside the city this summer!

5) Ghost Walks: Downtown Hamilton

The downtown area of Hamilton has some of the best ghost stories in the city!

During the walk, you’ll learn about the Colourful Women of Hamilton, the believed ghosts of women wearing different coloured dresses, and even a story about the city’s connection to a suspect in the infamous Jack the Ripper case. The next walks will be held in August, and you can book your place right now!
