Visit Goldsboro, the travel and tourism department for Goldsboro-Wayne County, is relaunching its Totally Fly Ghost Tours just in time for the fall season. The tours will take place on Fridays starting October 9 and will alternate each week between historic Downtown Goldsboro and the Goldsborough Bridge Battlefield site. Tours are from 7-9 p.m. and the cost is $15 per person. Due to new safety precautions, the tours are completely outdoors, limited to 20 people, and face coverings will be required. Tours will entail 1.5-2 miles of walking, as participants are led by a certified paranormal investigator.
The risks associated with COVID-19 and the state’s gathering restrictions forced Visit Goldsboro to pause the Totally Fly Tour series in March 2020.
“Visit Goldsboro is a certified member of Count On Me NC — a public health initiative that empowers visitors, guests and businesses to help keep everyone safe from COVID-19. Now that we know the right safety precautions, we are excited to launch our ghost tours just in time for the spooky month of October,” said Ashlin Glatthar, director of travel & tourism for Goldsboro-Wayne County. “The two different ghost tours options, Downtown and the Battlefield, will be both educational and entertaining as people will get to learn the history of our friendly, paranormal inhabitants. The tours are designed for visitors and locals to discover a different, and even surprising, side of Goldsboro.”
The Downtown Ghost Tour will take place on October 16 and 30, and the tour will start and finish at Well-Traveled Beer located at 201 S. Center Street. The Goldsborough Bridge Battlefield Ghost Tour takes place on the historical site in Dudley, N.C. on October 9 and 23. Parking is free at both locations. Interested participants are encouraged to sign up for both tours for the complete paranormal experience. To book a tour, visit http://www.totallyflytours.com/.
