What you'll do
Starting at the "Lost Boys" bridge we will begin our tour. From there, I will tell you ghostly tales of curses, lynchings and hauntings. Then we will walk on the boardwalk to Neptunes Kingdom. Along the way, we will be stopping at the historic "Giant Dipper," the "Haunted Castle" and the notorious "Speed bumps" to name a few. We will then go into Neptunes Kingdom (The Plunge) and you will learn about many death defying (and deathly) stories. Stories about the salt water pool drownings, apparitions and luminous ghostly sightings. There will be stairs to climb and pirates to fend off. Then we will walk up "Beach Hill" which is one of Santa Cruz's oldest neighborhoods. This historic neighborhood has a large collection of ghostly tales, hauntings, murders and stories about cannibals. We will end the tour stopping by two of Santa Cruz's most haunted homes built on ancient Native California's burial grounds.
Hello- I grew up in an international family and we owned a European travel business. My upbringing set the stage for me to entertain travelers from all over the world. With that said, I have dug deep into Santa Cruz's history. I have found lots of interesting, historical, spooky and fun stories to share with you. Stories about curses, murders, hangings, serial killers, cannibals, extinct creatures and more. I am also a Caricature Artist on the Boardwalk and I get the back stories about ghostly events. My blend of unique knowledge of local history combined with my gift for story telling makes me a perfect tour guide. Please note: I am not a psychic or a ghost hunter, I am a story teller and an entrainer. So tour along with me and maybe feel your skin crawl, feel a tap on your shoulder, see a luminous cloud or enjoy a fright-full giggle.
